Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-696) Thrift 0.8 boolean RPCs can't throw errors
Date Thu, 19 Jul 2012 15:56:35 GMT
John Vines created ACCUMULO-696:

             Summary: Thrift 0.8 boolean RPCs can't throw errors
                 Key: ACCUMULO-696
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: client
    Affects Versions: 1.5.0-SNAPSHOT
            Reporter: John Vines
            Assignee: Billie Rinaldi

Thrift 0.8 has a standing issue with boolean RPCs which default to FALSE when errors are thrown.
The only operations this affects are authenticateUser, hasSsytemPermission, and hasTablePermission.
Failing closed like it does prevents any real issues, it just throws off the security random
walk test, as well as some of the normally defined behavior.

Up until release, we'll leave it as is. Once it comes to release time, if a fixed version
of thrift isn't available, we can either change teh defined behavior (I'm not a fan) or tweak
the 3 thrift generated methods where the problem lies. But we'll cross that bridge when we
get there.
