Subject [jira] [Commented] (OAK-56) File system abstraction
Date Thu, 03 May 2012 15:36:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OAK-56?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13267504#comment-13267504

Jukka Zitting commented on OAK-56:
----------------------------------

I moved the code to oak-mk in revision 1333504 and replaced the dependencies in oak-core with
simpler Java IO alternatives.

I'm fine with leaving the code in svn for now if there's a reasonable expectation that we'll
be using it down the line for a native Oak disk persistence instead of always using an externally
developed database for storage.

> A file system abstraction allows to add new features (cross cutting concerns) in a modular
way, for example:
> - detection and special behavior of out-of-disk space situation
> - profiling and statistics over JMX
> - re-try on file system problems
> - encryption
> - file system monitoring
> - replication / real-time backup on the file system level (for clustering)
> - caching (improved performance for CRX)
> - allows to easily switch to faster file system APIs (FileChannel, memory mapped files)
> - debugging (for example, logging all file system operations)
> - allows to implement s3 / hadoop / mongodb / ... file systems - not only by us but from
3th party, possibly the end user
> - zip file system (for example to support read-only, compressed repositories)
> - testing: simulating out of disk space and out of memory (ensure the repository doesn't
corrupt in this case)
> - testing: simulate very large files (using an in-memory file system)
> - splitting very large files in 2 gb blocks (FAT and other file systems that don't support
large files)
> - data compression (if needed)
