Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-9047) deprecate libwebhdfs in branch-2; remove from trunk
Date Mon, 14 Sep 2015 23:03:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-9047?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14744456#comment-14744456
] 

Allen Wittenauer commented on HDFS-9047:
----------------------------------------

There's not really much gap to fill though.  It wasn't documented and mvn package never put
it in the tarball.  Besides, I've personally had much better luck using some random code on
Github for WebHDFS compatibility than this library....

> This library is basically a mess:
> * It's not part of the mvn package
> * It's missing functionality and barely maintained
> * It's not in the precommit runs so doesn't get exercised regularly
> * It's not part of the unit tests (at least, that I can see)
> * It isn't documented in any official documentation
> But most importantly:  
> * It fails at it's primary mission of being pure C (HDFS-3917 is STILL open)
> Let's cut our losses and just remove it.
