Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2656) Implement a pure c client based on webhdfs
Date Tue, 11 Sep 2012 20:16:09 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2656?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13453359#comment-13453359
] 

Suresh Srinivas commented on HDFS-2656:
---------------------------------------

bq. We might be able to read the XML preference files with an XML parsing library, and determine
the default NameNode and port this way. After all, Hadoop preference files are just XML files.
The issue here is not XML parsing. The issue is finding the XML files that are loaded from
classpath and jar files.

BTW instead of HDFS-3916, providing some of the feedback that motivated that jira as comments
on this jira would have been better. That way a person working on a jira understands what
is required of the work they are doing. Also a work gets in with some level of completeness.

> 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.
