Date Tue, 24 May 2011 08:31:48 GMT
FileSystem.listStatus() throws NullPointerException instead of IOException upon access permission
failure
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HADOOP-7327
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7327
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: fs
    Affects Versions: 0.22.0, 0.23.0
            Reporter: Matt Foley
            Assignee: Matt Foley


Many processes that call listStatus() expect to handle IOException, but instead are getting
runtime error NullPointerException, if the directory being scanned is visible but no-access
to the running user id.  For example, if directory foo is drwxr-xr-x, and subdirectory foo/bar
is drwx------, then trying to do listStatus(Path(foo/bar)) will cause a NullPointerException.
