Subject cp command in webhdfs (and Filesystem Java Object)
Date Tue, 28 Jun 2016 16:36:22 GMT

I'm writing this email, because, I spent one hour to look for a cp command
in the webhdfs API (in fact, I'm using HTTPFS, but I think it's the same).

This command is implemented in the "hdfs dfs" command line client (and I'm
using this command), but, I can't find it on the webhdfs REST API. I
thought that webhdfs is an implementation of the Filesystem object (
I checked at the Java API and I haven't found any cp command. The only java
cp command is on the FileUtil Object (
and I'm not sure that it work identicaly than "hdfs dfs -cp" command.

I also checked at the Hadoop JIRA, and I found nothing :

is there a way to execute a cp command through a REST API ?

All my best,
