Steve Loughran commented on BAHIR-67:

this is very much a sibling of the SPARK-7481 patch where I've been trying to 
add a module for dependencies and tests. ignoring the problem of getting a 
webhdfs JAR into SPARK_HOME/jars, the tests in that module should cover what's 
needed, both in terms of operations (basic IO) and the more minimal 
classpath/config checking.

I think you could bring up minidfs cluster in webhdfs mode, so have a 
functional test of things

>          Issue Type: Improvement

>   Original Estimate: 336h
>  Remaining Estimate: 336h
> In today's world of Analytics many use cases need capability to access data 
> from multiple remote data sources in Spark. Though Spark has great 
> integration with local Hadoop cluster it lacks heavily on capability for 
> connecting to a remote Hadoop cluster. However, in reality not all data of 
> enterprises in Hadoop and running Spark Cluster locally with Hadoop Cluster 
> is not always a solution.
> In this improvement we propose to create a connector for accessing data (read 
> and write) from/to HDFS of a remote Hadoop cluster from Spark using webhdfs 
> api.
