Subject [jira] Created: (HADOOP-3627) HDFS allows deletion of file while it is stil open

HDFS allows deletion of file while it is stil open

                 Key: HADOOP-3627
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3627
             Project: Hadoop Core
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: dfs
    Affects Versions: 0.19.0
            Reporter: Lohit Vijayarenu

This was a single node cluster, so my DFSClient was from same machine. In a terminal I was
writing to a HDFS file, while on another terminal deleted the same file. Deletion succeeded,
and the write client failed. If the write was still going on, then the next block commit would
result in exception saying, the block does not belong to any file. If the write was about
to close, then we get an exception in completing a file because getBlocks fails. 

Should we allow deletion of file? Even if we do, should the write fail?
