Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-5551) Namenode permits directory destruction on overwrite
Date Thu, 26 Mar 2009 21:43:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-5551?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12689684#action_12689684

Konstantin Shvachko commented on HADOOP-5551:

+1 for {{FSNamesystem}} changes.

{{TestCreateFile}} could be simplified: 
- you can assert right after creating the file, because the creation should not be successful.
Listing the directory does not really add any value. 
- if by any chance the file is created you should close the output stream.
Something like this: 
      try {
        FSDataOutputStream out = fs.create(dir1, true);
        assertTrue("Did not prevent directory from being overwritten.", false);
      } catch (IOException ie) {
        if (!ie.getMessage().contains("already exists as a directory.")) {
         throw ie;
- also you got some indentation problems in the test code (should be 2 spaces)
- and please make sure that lines do not exceed 80 symbols.

>    Affects Versions: 0.19.1
>            Reporter: Brian Bockelman
>            Priority: Critical

> The FSNamesystem's startFileInternal allows overwriting of directories.  That is, if
you have a directory named /foo/bar and you try to write a file named /foo/bar, the file is
written and the directory disappears.
> This is most apparent for folks using libhdfs directly, as overwriting is always turned
on.  Therefore, if libhdfs applications do not check the existence of a directory first, then
they will permit new files to destroy directories.
