Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3257) Path should handle all characters
Date Tue, 15 Apr 2008 02:27:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3257?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12588878#action_12588878

Runping Qi commented on HADOOP-3257:
------------------------------------


I think Hadoop need to make a clear and deliberate decision as to which chars are allowed/disallowed
as a part of dfs paths
and provide tool (sych as url encode/decode) to help deal with those disallowed chars.
Personally, I don't see why it is wrong to exclude ":" if doing so simplifies a lot of things.
I don't think it is worthwhile to invest a lot of efforts to support all chars in paths.

> Currently Path is limited by URI semantics in the sense that one cannot create files
whose names include characters such as ":" etc.
> HADOOP-2066 & HADOOP-3256 are manifestations of this problem. It would be nice if
Path handled all characters correctly...
