Date Thu, 04 May 2017 23:59:04 GMT
Wei-Chiu Chuang created HADOOP-14385:

             Summary: HttpExceptionUtils#validateResponse hides exceptions
                 Key: HADOOP-14385
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-14385
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Wei-Chiu Chuang
            Assignee: Wei-Chiu Chuang

In the following code
try {
        es = conn.getErrorStream();
        ObjectMapper mapper = new ObjectMapper();
        Map json = mapper.readValue(es, Map.class);
        json = (Map) json.get(ERROR_JSON);
        String exClass = (String) json.get(ERROR_CLASSNAME_JSON);
        String exMsg = (String) json.get(ERROR_MESSAGE_JSON);
        if (exClass != null) {
          try {
            ClassLoader cl = HttpExceptionUtils.class.getClassLoader();
            Class klass = cl.loadClass(exClass);
            Constructor constr = klass.getConstructor(String.class);
            toThrow = (Exception) constr.newInstance(exMsg);
          } catch (Exception ex) {
            toThrow = new IOException(String.format(
                "HTTP status [%d], exception [%s], message [%s] ",
                conn.getResponseCode(), exClass, exMsg));
        } else {
          String msg = (exMsg != null) ? exMsg : conn.getResponseMessage();
          toThrow = new IOException(String.format(
              "HTTP status [%d], message [%s]", conn.getResponseCode(), msg));
      } catch (Exception ex) {
        toThrow = new IOException(String.format( <-- here
            "HTTP status [%d], message [%s]", conn.getResponseCode(),
If the an exception is thrown within the try block, the initial exception is swallowed, and
it doesn't help debugging.
We had to cross reference this exception with the KMS server side to guess what happened.

IMHO the IOException thrown should also carry the initial exception. It should also print
exClass and exMsg. It probably failed to instantiate an exception class.
