Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3963) libhdfs should never exit on its own but rather return errors to the calling application
Date Sun, 07 Sep 2008 20:02:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3963?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12629003#action_12629003
] 

Pete Wyckoff commented on HADOOP-3963:
--------------------------------------

no new tests because this is only when something is drastically wrong and in the current libhdfs
environment that is almost impossible to test.  

The fact that the tests pass show that under normal conditions, everything is correct.

We could make libhdfs testing more robust be changing hdfs_test.c to testHdfs.java, but that's
a bigger project.

Can someone please commit this as there 3 other pending libhdfs patches in the pipeline.

thanks, pete

> A a library, libhdfs would be better to return errors rather than directly exiting. This
way the calling application can determine what to do on error. And it is more unix library
like to handle errors this way.
> Some applications like fuse-dfs need to handle the exit themselves after emitting an
appropriate error message to its log.
