FUSE: Filesystem in Userspace

With FUSE it is possible to implement a fully functional filesystem in a userspace program. 

If features:

  • Simple library API
  • Simple installation (no need to patch or recompile the kernel)
  • Secure implementation
  • Userspace – kernel interface is very efficient
  • Usable by non privileged users
  • Runs on Linux kernels 2.4.X and 2.6.X
  • Has proven very stable over time

There is also FUSE-J (Java bindings for FUSE), which is a Java API that uses JNI bindings to FUSE library and enables writing Linux filesystems in Java language
