FUSE module for BookKeeper
Possible Mentor
Ben Reed (breed at apache dot org) & Patrick Hunt (phunt at apache dot org)

C/Java, some networking familiarity

BookKeeper is a distributed write ahead log with client & server written in 
Java. BookKeeper client & server also use ZooKeeper. There is a BookKeeper API 
that clients can use to integrate write ahead logging into their application. 
It would be a lot easier if applications could use BK without changes to the 
client application through use of a file system api (FUSE). The project would 
involve implementing a C interface for BookKeeper (Java already exists) and 
implementing the FUSE module.

Example use: the write ahead log in mysql, called binlogs are typically written 
to the local filesystem using the std filesystem api. We could modify mysql to 
use BooKeeper, however if we had a BK FUSE module we could run it (mysql) w/o 
any modification and get the performance/reliability of a distributed write 
ahead log.
