Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3642) add a HadoopIOException that can be thrown in any method that has IOException on its signature

Owen O'Malley commented on HADOOP-3642:

I'm not wild about having an exception subclass that doesn't add any information. If we switch
over to java 6, does this still make sense?

signature varies from java1.5 to 1.6, and the base IOException is fairly meaningless. If Hadoop
added a HadoopIOException, it could be thrown whenever hadoop's own code needed to create
new IOExceptions, and possibly be differentiated in the catch() logic. 
> The biggest disadvantage of doing this is that as IOException is built into the JVM,
you can be sure that the far end will be able to deserialize it under RMI, without having
the rest of hadoop on the classpath. This is not a feature of hadoop, so should not be an
issue. For those of us who do use RMI, well, we'd better get our classpaths right.
