Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6537) Proposal for exceptions thrown by FileContext and Abstract File System
Date Mon, 08 Feb 2010 21:43:28 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6537?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12831138#action_12831138
] 

Sanjay Radia commented on HADOOP-6537:
--------------------------------------

* I would declare the RPC exception right now and describe them in the javadoc of FileContext
and AbstractFileSystem (i.e. if the file system is remote then it may throw an RPC exception).
Later we can modify the rpc layer to throw that exception.

> Currently the APIs in FileContext throw only IOException. Going forward these APIs will
throw more specific exceptions.
> This jira proposes following hierarchy of exceptions to be thrown by FileContext and
AFS (Abstract File System) classes.
> InterruptedException  (java.lang.InterruptedException)
> IOException
>                 /* Following exceptions extend IOException */
>                 FileNotFoundException
>                 FileAlreadyExistsException
>                 DirectoryNotEmptyException
>                 NotDirectoryException
>                 AccessDeniedException
>                 IsDirectoryException
>                 InvalidPathNameException
>                 
>                 FileSystemException
>                                      /* Following exceptions extend FileSystemException
*/
>                                      FileSystemNotReadyException
>                                      ReadOnlyFileSystemException
>                                      QuotaExceededException
>                                      OutOfSpaceException
>                 RemoteException   (java.rmi.RemoteException)
> Most of the IOExceptions above are caused by invalid user input, while FileSystemException
is thrown when FS is in such a state that the requested operation cannot proceed.
> Please note that the proposed RemoteException is from standard java rmi package, which
also extends IOException.
>                             
> HDFS throws many exceptions which are not in the above list. The DFSClient will unwrap
the exceptions thrown by HDFS, and any exception not in the above list will be thrown as IOException
or FileSystemException.
