Subject Re: question about matching java API with libHDFS
Date Thu, 04 Sep 2014 15:46:46 GMT
hi, Yi A,

Thanks for your response. I took a look at hdfs.h and hdfs.c, it seems the
lib only exposes some of APIs, as there are a lot of other public methods
can be accessed through java API/client, but not implemented in libhdfs,
such as the one I am using now: DFSclient.getNamenode().

Is the libhdfs designed to limit the access? Thanks
