Re: How to add another file system in Hadoop
What Hemanth points to (fs.TYPE.impl, i.e. fs.cdmi.impl being set to
the classname of the custom FS impl.) is correct for the 1.x releases.
In 2.x and ahead, the class for a URI is auto-discovered from the
classpath (a 'service'). So as long as your jar is present on the
user's runtime, the FS class implementing cdmi:// will get loaded and
work without requiring a config injection globally like 1.x did.
