Subject [GitHub] incubator-metron issue #453: METRON-694: Index Errors from Topologies
Date Thu, 02 Mar 2017 16:19:04 GMT
Github user justinleet commented on the issue:
    I tried running this up and discovered that there's at least one error that doesn't get
caught.  Json parsing errors, e.g. if someone gives outright badly formatted messages to indexing
(e.g. missing closing '}'), don't get caught and indexed right now.
    I don't believe we ever handled this type of error, because I don't think it ever occurs
from our code directly.  I'm inclined to not worry about it for this PR given that we never
worried about it to being with, but we may want to create a follow on Jira to ensure that
we handle cases like this well.  As we add and increase visibility to extension points, we
don't want things like this getting tripped by custom code.
    Anyone have objections to that?
