Subject [jira] Commented: (ZOOKEEPER-364) command line interface for zookeeper.
Date Fri, 03 Apr 2009 17:48:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-364?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12695515#action_12695515

Patrick Hunt commented on ZOOKEEPER-364:

ZOOKEEPER-36 allows for REST based tools to be developed. however this is implemented
as a proxy, rather than a core part of the server. so I don't think we should rely on rest
implementing clients (at least default CLI), even though things like python work really well
(there's an example tree dumper as part of 36)

Also implementing in Java seems to result in significant overhead - ie starting a jvm for
each command execution.

Perhaps C? Similar to the cli.c we currently have, but a set of command line tools rather
than a 
shell. I'm not sure c would be my first choice, but it would be nice from the perspective
exercising/testing our c binding.

Perhaps Perl? Chris has done a great job with the perl binding... however that would put
a requirement on external toolset not shipped with the release (cpan).

Perhaps some other lang, like python? Basically this forces us to implement python bindings
on top of the c intf. So the benefits of exercising c, plus we get python binding, plus the
benefits of implementing the commands using a scripting lang?

we should have a well published cli based interface for zookeeper.
