Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-4502) WebHdfsFileSystem handling of ifile field breaks compatibility and breaks HttpFS
Date Mon, 18 Feb 2013 18:01:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4502?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13580739#comment-13580739
] 

Alejandro Abdelnur commented on HDFS-4502:
------------------------------------------

Nicholas, are you saying that we should keep the additional fileId in the FileStatus JSON
response without being documented? Do we need it exposed in WebHDFS REST API? If we do, we
should either document that field. Or, document that the JSON response payloads may have additional
fields to the documented ones and clients should not require/fail if an undocumented field
is present or missing.

> HDFS-4340 introduced a new field {{fileId}} in WebHDFS FileStatus JSON representation.
> There are a two issues with this:
> * This is changing the WebHDFS REST API, this has not been documented
> * WebHdfsFileSystem should not fail when that field is not present (This is the case
when using HttpFS against a FS implementation -other than HDFS- which does not handle fileId)
