             Summary: Fix interpretation of empty absolute-path configuration properties
                 Key: ACCUMULO-2672
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-2672
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Test
            Reporter: Bill Havanki
            Assignee: Bill Havanki
            Priority: Minor


Follow-on to ACCUMULO-2657.

The Shard randomwalk test can fail if the {{general.maven.project.basedir}} property differs
between a table and its copy. This can happen if servers start from different Java user directories,
because the default property value of "" (the empty string) is run through {{new File("").getAbsolutePath()}},
and that file is expanded to become the user directory.

Fix how that default value is defined or interpreted so that the test passes without having
to explicitly set the property.

The ultimate goal is to future-proof {{AccumuloClassLoader}}. Currently, it is the only true
consumer of the property, and it pulls it directly from accumulo-site.xml instead of going
through the configuration system. Because of this, it is not subject to the value becoming
the user directory, which is a Good Thing. If it were someday refactored to use the configuration
system, though, it could then start to pull test classes in from the user directory, which
should not happen in production and could lead to a security violation.
