Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-7337) Configurable and pluggable Erasure Codec and schema

Kai Zheng commented on HDFS-7337:
---------------------------------

Hi [~szetszwo],

It would be great if the erasure codec work can be worked out and used in other context, anyway
it's better not to tightly couple with HDFS. Having the codes stay in hadoop-common side,
it would avoid many basic bootstrap work when support and incorporate native libraries as
compression, encryption and etc. do.

> According to HDFS-7285 and the design, this considers to support multiple Erasure Codecs
via pluggable approach. It allows to define and configure multiple codec schemas with different
coding algorithms and parameters. The resultant codec schemas can be utilized and specified
via command tool for different file folders. While design and implement such pluggable framework,
it’s also to implement a concrete codec by default (Reed Solomon) to prove the framework
is useful and workable. Separate JIRA could be opened for the RS codec implementation.
> Note HDFS-7353 will focus on the very low level codec API and implementation to make
concrete vendor libraries transparent to the upper layer. This JIRA focuses on high level
stuffs that interact with configuration, schema and etc.
