Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-7368) Support HDFS specific 'shell' on command 'hdfs dfs' invocation
Date Tue, 21 Jul 2015 19:15:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-7368?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14635649#comment-14635649
] 

Allen Wittenauer commented on HDFS-7368:
----------------------------------------

-1

We should be trying to get rid of 'hdfs dfs' as much as possible and encouraging the use of
'hadoop fs'.  Despite what people think, there is absolutely nothing unique to HDFS from an
end-user or application perspective that shouldn't be implemented in the common abstraction.

> * *hadoop fs* is the generic implementation for all filesystem implementations, but some
of the operations are supported only in some filesystems. Ex: snapshot commands, acl commands,
xattr commands.
> * *hdfs dfs* is recommended in all hdfs related docs in current releases.
> In current code  both *hdfs shell* and *hadoop fs* points to hadoop common implementation
of FSShell.
> It would be better to have HDFS specific extention of FSShell which includes HDFS only
commands in future.
