Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6796) FileStatus allows null srcPath but crashes if that's done
Date Tue, 01 Jun 2010 22:31:36 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6796?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12874284#action_12874284

Rodrigo Schmidt commented on HADOOP-6796:

What should be the srcPath for "new FileStatus()" then?

I don't think disabling this constructor is a good choice. As a Writable, people might want
to create a new empty object and read from some DataOutput (that was exactly how I found the
problem, by the way :-)).
