Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6536) FileUtil.fullyDelete(dir) behavior is not defined when we pass a symlink as the argument
Date Fri, 12 Mar 2010 09:59:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6536?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12844441#action_12844441

Vinod K V commented on HADOOP-6536:
-----------------------------------

bq. I guess fullyDelete() should delete as many files as possible(similar to 'rm -rf').
+1 for this. But this is a separate issue, so I am creating a new ticket for this.

> FileUtil.fullyDelete(dir) deletes contents of sym-linked directory when we pass a symlink.
If this is the behavior, it should be documented as so. 
> Or it should be changed not to delete the contents of the sym-linked directory.
