Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-9984) FileSystem#globStatus and FileSystem#listStatus should resolve symlinks by default
Date Fri, 20 Sep 2013 20:36:58 GMT
Colin Patrick McCabe created HADOOP-9984:
--------------------------------------------

             Summary: FileSystem#globStatus and FileSystem#listStatus should resolve symlinks
by default
                 Key: HADOOP-9984
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9984
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.1.0-beta
            Reporter: Colin Patrick McCabe
            Assignee: Colin Patrick McCabe


During the process of adding symlink support to FileSystem, we realized that many existing
HDFS clients would be broken by listStatus and globStatus returning symlinks.  One example
is applications that assume that !FileStatus#isFile implies that the inode is a directory.
 As we discussed in HADOOP-9972 and HADOOP-9912, we should default these APIs to returning
resolved paths.
