Subject [jira] Updated: (HADOOP-6890) Improve listFiles API introduced by HADOOP-6870
Date Sat, 31 Jul 2010 00:40:17 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6890?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Hairong Kuang updated HADOOP-6890:

    Attachment: listFilesInFS.patch

This patch makes the implementation of listFiles in FileSystem is the same as the one in FileContext
except that it does not handle symbolic links. This will make the code easier to maintain
later one.

> This jira is mainly for addressing Suresh's review comments for HADOOP-6870:
>    1. General comment: I have concerns about recursive listing. This could be abused
by the applications, creating a lot of requests into HDFS.
>    2. Any deletion of files/directories while reursing through directories results in
RuntimeException and application has a partial result. Should we ignore if a directory was
in stack and was not found later when iterating through it?
>    3. FileSystem.java
>           * listFile() - method javadoc could be better organized - first write about
if path is directory and two cases recursive=true and false. Then if path is file and two
cases recursive=true or false.
>           * listFile() - document throwing RuntimeException, UnsupportedOperationException
and the possible cause. IOException is no longer thrown.
>    4. TestListFiles.java
>           * testDirectory() - comments test empty directory and test directory with 1
file should be moved up to relevant sections of the test.
