Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-9061) Java6+Windows does not work well with symlinks
Date Sun, 18 Nov 2012 20:38:58 GMT
Ivan Mitic created HADOOP-9061:

             Summary: Java6+Windows does not work well with symlinks
                 Key: HADOOP-9061
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9061
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1-win
            Reporter: Ivan Mitic
            Assignee: Ivan Mitic

We’ve seen multiple problems with file operations on symbolic links on Java6 on Windows.
 - File#length returns zero on symbolic links
 - File#renameTo renames the target, not the symlink

Problematic scenarios are mainly related to symlinks created for dist cache.

Java7 does not have above problems.
