I want to move files around in HDFS using the Java APIs. I cannot figure out a way to do this. The FileSystem class only seems to want to allow moving to and from the local file system.. but I want to keep them in HDFS and move them there.
Am I missing something basic? The only way I can figure to do it is to read it from the input stream and write it back out... and then delete the old copy (yuck).
public abstract boolean rename(Path src, Path dst) throws IOException
dst. Can take place on local fs or remote DFS.
src- path to be renamed
dst- new path after rename
trueif rename is successful
IOException - on failure
