Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-13172) And an UnsupportedFeatureException for Filesystems to throw on unsupported operations
Date Wed, 18 May 2016 14:48:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-13172?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15289089#comment-15289089
] 

Andras Bokor commented on HADOOP-13172:
---------------------------------------

In some cases like {{FileSystem#getScheme}} we throw {{UnsupportedOperationException}} which
indicates that the requested operation is not supported.
What is the benefit to use a custom exception instead of a built in exception type?

> Filesystems which don't support things like append() tend to throw a simple IOE, which
makes it hard to distinguish "append didn't work for some IO problem" and "append isn't implemented".
> If we add a new exception, {{UnsupportedFeatureException}}, make it the strict failure
mode of such operations if not supported and patch all our filesystems to raise it, then at
least code has a straightforward check. Same for any other unimplemented feature
