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

> 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
> 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.
