Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-9047) deprecate libwebhdfs in branch-2; remove from trunk
Date Tue, 15 Sep 2015 18:12:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-9047?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14745854#comment-14745854
] 

Colin Patrick McCabe commented on HDFS-9047:
--------------------------------------------

[~aw], if you think "some random code on github" is better, then please see if you can integrate
that (assuming its license is compatible) and get rid of libwebhdfs.  I'm just saying that
we shouldn't remove it without a replacement.

> 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.
