Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-12563) Updated utility to create/modify token files
Date Mon, 18 Jan 2016 19:56:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-12563?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15105754#comment-15105754
] 

Allen Wittenauer commented on HADOOP-12563:
-------------------------------------------

bq. can we talk about the ability to have different formats now or do we have to talk about
adding the ability in a follow up to this?

I'd prefer we cover them as a separate JIRA.  My plan was to only commit this to trunk, since
we already know that some ecosystem projects (e.g., Spark) are doing question stuff like shading
the Credential class.  If everyone thinks the general framework here is OK, then let's commit
this and spread out/move on to further enhancements such as adding other token formats.

(Yes, technically the changes here are "legally" compatible. But there have been enough surprising/damaging
changes in branch-2 throughout it's extremely long lifetime that unless one completely disregards
the users, it's unconscionable to make the situation even worse by committing this there.)

> hdfs fetchdt is missing some critical features and is geared almost exclusively towards
HDFS operations.  Additionally, the token files that are created use Java serializations which
are hard/impossible to deal with in other languages. It should be replaced with a better utility
in common that can read/write protobuf-based token files, has enough flexibility to be used
with other services, and offers key functionality such as append and rename. The old version
file format should still be supported for backward compatibility, but will be effectively
deprecated.
> A follow-on JIRA will deprecrate fetchdt.
