Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2656) Implement a pure c client based on webhdfs
Date Fri, 10 Aug 2012 03:42:51 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2656?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13432588#comment-13432588

Eli Collins commented on HDFS-2656:
-----------------------------------

Suresh, I just asked him what his use case and applications were because I'm curious =)  I'm
not opposed to this change, per all my discussion you pointed out I think a C-binding for
the WEBHDFS API is useful, in fact I think doing this in libhdfs makes more sense than fuse-dfs.

> Currently, the implementation of libhdfs is based on JNI. The overhead of JVM seems a
little big, and libhdfs can also not be used in the environment without hdfs.
> It seems a good idea to implement a pure c client by wrapping webhdfs. It also can be
used to access different version of hdfs.
