Patrick Hunt commented on ZOOKEEPER-237: ---------------------------------------- There are a couple of pros for server: 1) implement once rather than once for each client java/c 2) it has the additional benefit of being a security feature, rather than just a user convenience. would be interesting to look at the complexity of implementation client vs server. > Add a Chroot request > -------------------- > > Key: ZOOKEEPER-237 > URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-237 > Project: Zookeeper > Issue Type: New Feature > Components: c client, java client, server > Reporter: Benjamin Reed > Priority: Minor > Fix For: 3.2.0 > > > It would be nice to be able to root ZooKeeper handles at specific points in > the namespace, so that applications that use ZooKeeper can work in their own > rooted subtree. > For example, if ops decides that application X can use the subtree /apps/X > and application Y can use the subtree /apps/Y, X can to a chroot to /apps/X > and then all its path references can be rooted at /apps/X. Thus when X > creates the path "/myid", it will actually be creating the path > "/apps/X/myid". > There are two ways we can expose this mechanism: 1) We can simply add a > chroot(String path) API, or 2) we can integrate into a service identifier > scheme for example zk://server1:2181,server2:2181/my/root. I like the second > form personally. -- This message is automatically generated by JIRA. - You can reply to this email to add a comment to the issue online.
