Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-3855) ProxyServer.update fails silently if batchwriter doesn't exist
Date Thu, 28 May 2015 18:45:19 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-3855?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14563447#comment-14563447
] 

Josh Elser commented on ACCUMULO-3855:
--------------------------------------

For historical purposes, ACCUMULO-3856 and ACCUMULO-3855 got transposed a couple of times,
so I switched the content of the two issues.

> Inspecting ProxyServer, saw the following:
> {code}
>   @Override
>   public void update(String writer, Map<ByteBuffer,List<ColumnUpdate>> cells)
throws TException {
>     try {
>       BatchWriterPlusException bwpe = getWriter(writer);
>       addCellsToWriter(cells, bwpe);
>     } catch (UnknownWriter e) {
>       // just drop it, this is a oneway thrift call and throwing a TException seems to
make all subsequent thrift calls fail
>     }
>   }
> {code}
> This means that calls to update which fail to get a BatchWriter (for whatever reason)
will silently fail and appear to the user to have written data successfully. This is horrible.
> I'm not sure what the comment means either. I'm not sure why throwing a TException from
the server would invalidate the connection, but perhaps I'm just ignorant of some finer details.
