Subject Re: Copy file using Webhdfs
Date Mon, 16 Apr 2012 13:59:32 GMT
Copying files has always involved downloading the data and then uploading it again. This is
true of both FileUtils, and -cp from the command line.  IT really would be great to have a
way for HDFS to do it for you, behind the scenes, but that is not implemented yet.

Hi ,
I am using webhdfs (REST urls) in hadoop-1.0.0 for filesystem operation. I am following "http://hadoop.apache.org/common/docs/r1.0.0/webhdfs.html
There is no url supported for Copy files with HDFS. Usually we do it with FileUtils api or
"-cp" command of shell.
Do we have a way to copy files in webhdfs also ?
