             Summary: Validate xml configuration files with XML Schema
                 Key: HADOOP-12118
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-12118
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Christopher Tubbs

I spent an embarrassingly long time today trying to figure out why the following wouldn't


I just kept getting an error about no authority for {{fs.defaultFS}}, with a value of {{file:///}},
which made no sense... because I knew it was there.

The problem was that the {{core-site.xml}} was parsed entirely without any validation. This
seems incorrect. The very least that could be done is a simple XML Schema validation against
an XSD, before parsing. That way, users will get immediate failures on common typos and other
problems in the xml configuration files.
