APIs for accessing HDFS

Use the WebHDFS REST API to access an HDFS cluster from applications external to the cluster. WebHDFS supports all HDFS user operations including reading files, writing to files, making directories, changing permissions and renaming. In addition, WebHDFS uses Kerberos and delegation tokens for authenticating users.
