Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6113) AccessControlException should display the full path
Date Fri, 26 Jun 2009 17:21:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6113?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12724618#action_12724618
] 

Ramya R commented on HADOOP-6113:
---------------------------------

For example, When user 'A' tries to write under user B's home location. It throws the following
exception:
org.apache.hadoop.security.AccessControlException: Permission denied: user=A, access=WRITE,
inode="B":B:supergroup:rwxr-xr-x
Instead, it would be helpful if the exception read:
org.apache.hadoop.security.AccessControlException: Permission denied: user=A, access=WRITE,
inode="/user/B":B:supergroup:drwxr-xr-x
This is because, if there are many directories with the same name under different paths, it
becomes difficult to figure out the exact directory for which the access was denied.
Also when the permission(in this case rwxr-xr-x) is displayed, it should also show whether
it is a directory or not(i.e. it should show drwxr-xr-x). Currently this does not happen.
Hence, in cases where the same name is used for a directory and a file , the user is not sure
if access is denied to a file or a directory.
