Namenode should return error when trying to delete non-empty directory
----------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HADOOP-771
                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-771
             Project: Hadoop
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: dfs
    Affects Versions: 0.8.0
         Environment: all
            Reporter: Milind Bhandarkar


Currently, the namenode.delete() method allows recursive deletion of a directory. That is,
even a non-empty directory could be deleted using namenode.delete(). To avoid costly programmer
errors, the namenode should not remove the non-empty directories in this method. Recursively
deleting directory should either be performed with listPaths() followed by a delete() for
every path, or with a specific namenode method such as deleteRecursive().
