Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-281) dfs.FSDirectory.mkdirs can create sub-directories of a file!
Date Mon, 17 Jul 2006 19:48:14 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-281?page=comments#action_12421706 ] 
Konstantin Shvachko commented on HADOOP-281:

I think addNode() is a good place to check whether the parent is a directory.
mkdirs() does not need to check all parents in the path, just the last one, since
all other parents have already been checked before.
I agree with Arun, the return value of mkdirs() should be checked every time
it is called to make sure the directories were actually created, including FileUtil
copy methods.
For mkdirs() I would let the FileNotFoundException exception thrown by addNode()
go through, rather than catching it and returning boolean, so that whoever calls
mkdirs() could decide what to do.
But there might be different opinions on that, and this will require more code changes.

> dfs.FSDirectory.mkdirs will merrily adds children to a directory tree node without checking
whether it represents a directory. So it is possible to create a subdirectories of a file.
