Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8957) FileContext.getFileContext causes multiple test failures on Windows due to InvocationTargetException
Date Tue, 06 Nov 2012 22:42:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8957?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13491905#comment-13491905

Sanjay Radia commented on HADOOP-8957:

* You have added viewFS#resolveFromFSState where you validate the path for mounts
** The mounted file systems will validate the path names anyway - so is this necessary?
** What about validating internal names (ie within the mounted) which your patch does not.
*** Add a test for that.
*** One could argue that the pathname validity check for internal names is needed *only* when
the mount table is created, since illegal names will not match to any internal names within
the mount table.  This translates to  whether one wants IllegalNameException or PathNotFoundException
when the user does open("illegal:path"). I think your patch returns PathNotFoundException
for internal names that are illegal.
** You didn't use resolveFromFSState in  ViewFileSystem? Shouldn't ViewFs and ViewFileSystem
be consistent?
** Minor - a better name would have been validatePathAndResolve

* AbstractFileSystem#isValidName - Being able to override isValidName makes sense but the
default impl should not return true;  instead the default impl should be the code needed by
HDFS -- file systems that need a different impl can override this method.

InvocationTargetException from AbstractFileSystem.newInstance.
