Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-2652) Fix permission issues for HftpFileSystem
Date Tue, 22 Jan 2008 19:57:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2652?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12561445#action_12561445

Hairong Kuang commented on HADOOP-2652:

1. HftpFileSystem.initialize should throw a LoginException when login failed. Otherwise, A
NullPointerException might be thrown when a URL is constructed.
2. ListPathsServlet and FileDataServlet talks to namenode through RPC not by direct method
call. Shall we concern about the performance?
3. ListPathsServlet.writeInfo should also write a path's permission-related info back to the
4, For secondary namenode communication, I think it is better to check the user in getFileServer
and getInfoServer. This means that these two methods can not be static.
5. Can we also enforce user checking for NamenodeProtocol?
6. The patch passes the user info to StreamFile servlets but the user info is not used. Since
currently dfs does not check user authorization for client to datanode communications, I feel
it is better to do it later on.
