Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-8493) Extend Path with Path#toFile() and Path(File) to better support path cross-platform differences
Date Fri, 08 Jun 2012 00:29:23 GMT
Ivan Mitic created HADOOP-8493:
----------------------------------

             Summary: Extend Path with Path#toFile() and Path(File) to better support path
cross-platform differences
                 Key: HADOOP-8493
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8493
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: fs
            Reporter: Ivan Mitic
            Assignee: Ivan Mitic
            Priority: Minor


In Hadoop, Path object is used to represent both local and remote (for example DFS) paths.
In some scenarios, Path's path is passed on directly to the operating system shell. As seen
in [MAPREDUCE-4321|https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-4321], the path returned
from the Path object is not necessary a valid shell path. By providing {{Path#toFile()}} and
{{Path(File)}}, we will provide means by which people can do the right thing if they follow
certain rules. However, as noted in comments for MAPREDUCE-4321, this does not provide any
guaranties that someone won't unknowingly do it wrong in the future, but it is still a step
forward.
