Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-9541) Add hdfsStreamBuilder API to libhdfs to support defaultBlockSizes greater than 2 GB
Date Thu, 10 Dec 2015 22:49:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-9541?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15051798#comment-15051798
] 

Colin Patrick McCabe commented on HDFS-9541:
--------------------------------------------

This patch is compatible since it just adds new APIs rather than changing or removing existing
ones.  For new APIs, we want to explicitly spell out the type sizes so that they are the same
on each platform.  This patch adds a builder API which we can use to add more options to "open"
later if we want.

> We should have a new API in libhdfs which will support creating files with a default
block size that is more than 31 bits in size.  We should also make this a builder API so that
it is easy to add more options later.
