Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2631) Add optional libwebhdfs support to fuse-dfs
Date Tue, 11 Sep 2012 22:34:09 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2631?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13453495#comment-13453495
] 

Suresh Srinivas commented on HDFS-2631:
---------------------------------------

Eli, thanks for updating the summary. 

bq. One of the things that made HDFS-2656 hard to follow is that no target version was set
so it was hard to see what release the change was intended for. 
Not sure I understand this comment and why it was hard to follow. When nothing is provided
in these fields is it not intended for trunk?

> We should port the implementation of fuse-dfs to use the webhdfs protocol. This has a
number of benefits:
> * Compatibility - allows a single fuse client to work across server versions
> * Works with both WebHDFS and Hoop since they are protocol compatible
> * Removes the overhead related to libhdfs (forking a jvm)
> * Makes it easier to support features like security
