Subject [jira] Updated: (HADOOP-6201) FileSystem::ListStatus should throw FileNotFoundException
Date Mon, 24 Aug 2009 18:30:59 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6201?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Jakob Homan updated HADOOP-6201:

    Release Note: 
Solidify FileSystem contract for listStatus method when the provided path does not exist.
The method is now guaranteed to throw a FileNotFoundException, whereas some FileSystem implementations
had previously returned null in this case. Existing code that relies on checking for null
should be updated to catch or propagate a FileNotFoundException.

Adding release note.

> As discussed in HDFS-538, it would be better for FileSystem and its implementations to
throw FileNotFoundException when the file is not found, rather than returning null.  This
will bring it in line with getFileStatus and, I expect, default user expectations.
