HDFS extension package

This package adds support for accessing external files on a Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS).


  • BASE 3.0 or higher is required. This extension doesn't work with BASE 2.x.
  • The README contains information about this package, how to install it, use it and how to compile it.

Version Revision Date Binary (tar.gz) BASE Version*
1.0 1452 November 3, 2011 hdfs-1.0.tar.gz (2MB) 3.0 changelog

* In general, each release works with the specified and later BASE versions, except that releases for BASE 2 do not work with BASE 3.

Source code can be downloaded from the subversion repository. Use the following command to get source code for the 1.0 version:

svn co hdfs-1.0

The latest development (maybe unstable; do not use on a production server) revision can be checked out from the repository using the following command:

svn co hdfs-dev


After making modifications to the source code, compose a clear and concise log message to describe those changes and the reasons for them. Then, send an email to the developers list containing your log message and the output of svn diff (from the top of your subversion working copy). If the community members consider your changes acceptable, someone who has commit privileges will add your changes to the public source code tree. Recall that permission to directly commit changes to the repository is granted on merit - if you demonstrate comprehension of subversion, programming competency, and a team spirit, you will likely be awarded that permission.
