Subject [jira] Updated: (HADOOP-6243) NPE in handling deprecated configuration keys.
Date Tue, 08 Sep 2009 09:04:57 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6243?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Sreekanth Ramakrishnan updated HADOOP-6243:

    Attachment: HADOOP-6243-1.patch

The patch fixes the {{NullPointerException}} which was thrown when {{Configuration.get()}}
method is invoked.

The {{Configuration.processDeprecation()}} used to load the classes which were present as
part of {{hadoop.conf.extra.classes}} key.

If one of those classes have a static block which does an {{Configuration.addResource()}},
the property map maintained by the Configuration is set to null causing the {{NullPointerException}}

After, offline discussion with Hemanth and Chaitanya with regards to correct fix, a new JIRA
would be opened in order to discuss how best to expose the usage of HADOOP-6105 to consumers,
and this JIRA would provide a short term fix in which consumers are expected to change the
{{static}} block in {{Configuration}} class for using HADOOP-6105
