Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-8766) Implement a libhdfs(3) compatible API
Date Thu, 01 Oct 2015 17:20:26 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-8766?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14940090#comment-14940090
] 

Haohui Mai commented on HDFS-8766:
----------------------------------

bq. For now I'd really like to avoid shared_ptr and unique_ptr until I move the stress tests
from github to this for HDFS-8790. I wouldn't be surprised if some bugs shake out when running
large stress tests so I'd like to make things easier to debug using the pointer invalidation
macro.

I think it makes sense to commit clean codes and separate the debugging code into a separate
jira.

> Add a synchronous API that is compatible with the hdfs.h header used in libhdfs and libhdfs3.
 This will make it possible for projects using libhdfs/libhdfs3 to relink against libhdfspp
with minimal changes.
> This also provides a pure C interface that can be linked against projects that aren't
built in C++11 mode for various reasons but use the same compiler.  It also allows many other
programming languages to access libhdfspp through builtin FFI interfaces.
> The libhdfs API is very similar to the posix file API which makes it easier for programs
built using posix filesystem calls to be modified to access HDFS.
