Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-9047) deprecate libwebhdfs in branch-2; remove from trunk
Date Tue, 13 Oct 2015 20:40:10 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-9047?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14955621#comment-14955621

Haohui Mai commented on HDFS-9047:

bq. libhdfs still depends on Hadoop jar files and Java VM, which libwebhdfs does not. These
are funamentally different use-cases.

Unfortunately libwebhdfs does depend on Hadoop jars and Java VM today (HDFS-3917). Although
it is fixable, but I don't think anyone has signed up for it given the current state of libwebhdfs.
Are there any use cases in mind that libhdfs fails to replace libwebhdfs?

> 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.
