While looking through the source code of Hadoop, we found the ErasureCoder and ErasureCodec APIs are not being used in HDFS. The HDFS still uses the RawErasureCoder API.
We have been working on creating a Erasure Codec Plugin for ClayCodes, which uses these APIs. We would like to know what is the progress regarding integrating the ErasureCodec in HDFS. We could not find any active Jira on the same, correct us if we are wrong. (
HDFS-7337 seems to be resolved)
