Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-9055) WebHDFS REST v2
Date Sat, 12 Sep 2015 01:56:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-9055?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14741849#comment-14741849

Allen Wittenauer commented on HDFS-9055:

bq. This is a false statement. 

The people who wrote the library disagree. So if you have solution, you should send that to
Google.  Frankly, I'll take their word over yours given they, you know, built it.

bq. There is no need to use protobuf 3.x. The format is wire-compatible with protobuf 2.x,
which means the current RPC will work without changes.

Please go back and re-read exactly what I said.  Slowly this time.  

bq. Have you tried it out?

No because...

bq. You're good as long as you're able to talk HTTP and protobuf.

... protobuf instantly kills it.  If we wanted to use protobuf, we wouldn't be using REST
to begin with!

> There's starting to be enough changes to fix and add missing functionality to webhdfs
that we should probably update to REST v2.  This also gives us an opportunity to deal with
some incompatible issues.
