Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3281) bin/hadoop script should check class name before running java
Date Fri, 02 May 2008 17:04:55 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3281?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12593818#action_12593818
] 

Doug Cutting commented on HADOOP-3281:
--------------------------------------

Ideally there should be no per-command information in bin/hadoop.  When one adds or alters
a command, one should only have to edit one file.  So the OPTS stuff should move into Java
too, as should all the help strings.

> When the first parameter ($1) cannot be matched with one of existing hadoop commnads,
the parameter will be considered as a class name and the script will pass it to java.  For
examples,
> {noformat}
> bash-3.2$ ./bin/hadoop -version
> java version "1.5.0_14"
> Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_14-b03)
> Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_14-b03, mixed mode)
> bash-3.2$ ./bin/hadoop -help   
> Usage: java [-options] class [args...]
>            (to execute a class)
>    or  java [-options] -jar jarfile [args...]
>            (to execute a jar file)
> ...
> {noformat}
> The behavior above is confusing.  We should check whether the parameter is a valid class
name before passing it to java.
