Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-9144) Refactor libhdfs into stateful/ephemeral objects
Date Wed, 04 Nov 2015 16:14:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-9144?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14989813#comment-14989813
] 

Bob Hansen commented on HDFS-9144:
----------------------------------

[~wheat9]: I re-named the "object that acts as a clean interface to the NameNode" as "NameNodeOperations,"
but I'm still not completely satisfied.  This object should own both the RPCEngine and the
ClientNameNodeProtocol objects and provide a nice, higher-level interface to the underlying
operations (see the GetBlockLocations implementation).  I considered just pushing the current
protobuf-consuming methods into the private space of ClientNameNodeProtocol and adding clean
public methods, but ClientNameNodeProtocol is generated code.  

If you can suggest a better refactoring, I would happily take feedback.

> In discussion for other efforts, we decided that we should separate several concerns:
> * A posix-like FileSystem/FileHandle object (stream-based, positional reads)
> * An ephemeral ReadOperation object that holds the state for reads-in-progress, which
consumes
> * An immutable FileInfo object which holds the block map and file size (and other metadata
about the file that we assume will not change over the life of the file)
