Subject [jira] [Commented] (AVRO-1249) DataFileWriter doesn't correctly conform to Closeable
Date Tue, 12 Feb 2013 03:29:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-1249?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13576349#comment-13576349
] 

Doug Cutting commented on AVRO-1249:
------------------------------------

Patch looks good.  We should add a test case.

I don't think this level of incompatibility (something that previously incorrectly threw an
exception no longer does) should block this going out in a point release.

> o.a.avro.file.DataFileWriter implements java.io.Closeable, but violates the contract
stated by the interface's close() method javadoc.

> {quote}
> DataFileWriter's close() calls flush() calls sync() which calls assertOpen(). This causes
repeated calls to close(), or those on a file that failed to open, to throw an exception which
violates the contract. Notably, the following idiom fails (and shouldn't).
> {code}
> import com.google.common.io.Closeables;
> // ...
> DataFileWriter writer = null;
> try {
>   writer = new DataFileWriter(...);
>   // ...
> } finally {
>   Closeables.closeQuietly(writer);
> }
> {code}
