Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-4169) FSUtils LeaseRecovery for non HDFS FileSystems.
Date Mon, 08 Aug 2011 17:02:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4169?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13081058#comment-13081058

Todd Lipcon commented on HBASE-4169:

This patch is a little strange - why use reflection here to access the static method in FSHDFSUtils
instead of just creating a new interface or abstract class, and using non-static methods?

I think a more conventional approach would be:
- Create an abstract class FSUtils, which declares either default implementations or abstract
methods for all of the things that different file systems would want to override
- This class would also have a method getInstance(Filesystem, Configuration), which returns
a subclass of FSUtils dependent on scheme, using ReflectionUtils.newInstance
- If this ever becomes a performance hotspot we could add a cache here, but for rare operations
like recoverLease it shouldn't matter
