Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-9241) HDFS clients can't construct HdfsConfiguration instances
Date Mon, 19 Oct 2015 23:59:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-9241?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14964272#comment-14964272

Haohui Mai commented on HDFS-9241:

bq. most of the problematic dependencies like Jackson, Guava, Jetty, Jersey, Netty, Xerces,
Protobuf are included in the client anyway

I found that the above statement inaccurate. Many of the above dependency comes as transitive
dependency from hadoop-common. They are not needed from hadoop-hdfs-client. They can be excluded
as what have been done in hadoop client. Just to give an example, we cleaned up the implementation
of log4j in the module (HDFS-6564). I don't see how this can be done correctly without the

As the refactor continues to break down hadoop-common into server / client modules, I anticipate
that this is a non-issue. The shadowing approach is complementary. However, having a client
that shadows 2000 classes that it doesn't need that it happens to work at a first glance but
it doesn't seems elegant and responsible in the long term.

> the changes for the hdfs client classpath make instantiating {{HdfsConfiguration}} from
the client impossible; it only lives server side. This breaks any app which creates one.
> I know people will look at the {{@Private}} tag and say "don't do that then", but it's
worth considering precisely why I, at least, do this: it's the only way to guarantee that
the hdfs-default and hdfs-site resources get on the classpath, including all the security
settings. It's precisely the use case which {{HdfsConfigurationLoader.init();}} offers internally
to the hdfs code.
> What am I meant to do now?
