We are using Spoon 4.4 to load an hdfs file and upload the data to a dbms.

I see the following error -
Unable to get VFS File object for filename 'hdfs:<host>ort/path.."

.. FileInputList - ERROR (version 4.4.0-stable, build 17588 from 2012-11-21 16.02.21 by buildguy) : at org.pentaho.di.core.vfs.KettleVFS.getFileObject(KettleVFS.java:161)

I have tried updating the jar files hadoop-core1.2.1.jar and the commons configuration but still no luck.
Any help is much appreciated! Thanks.
