Subject [jira] [Updated] (HADOOP-7287) Configuration deprecation mechanism doesn't work properly for GenericOptionsParser/Tools
Date Fri, 13 May 2011 00:30:47 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7287?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Todd Lipcon updated HADOOP-7287:
--------------------------------

    Attachment: hadoop-7287-testcase.txt

Here's a test case which illustrates why this problem happens. You can easily reproduce from
the command line by trying something like:

./bin/hadoop fs -Ddfs.block.size=4096 -touchz f1
./bin/hadoop fs -stat "%o" f1

and you'll see that the deprecated option was ignored and there was no warning.

> For example, you can't use -D options on the "hadoop fs" command line in order to specify
the deprecated names of configuration options. The issue is that the ordering is:
> - JVM starts
> - GenericOptionsParser creates a Configuration object and calls set() for each of the
options specified on command line
> - DistributedFileSystem or other class eventually instantiates HdfsConfiguration which
adds the deprecations
> - Some class calls conf.get("new key") and sees the default instead of the version set
on the command line
