Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-7602) wordcount, sort etc on har files fails with NPE
Date Tue, 13 Sep 2011 20:23:09 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7602?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13103957#comment-13103957

Jitendra Nath Pandey commented on HADOOP-7602:

> -1 buildDTAuthority absolutely cannot return an empty string in any other context w/o
wrecking havoc on token processing.
  John's patch is returning empty string only for cases where it would otherwise throw an
NPE. Empty string is being thrown only if authority is not a valid host, in that case it will
not cause any problem because no connection or tokens would work for such hosts anyway.

I look at this jira solving an immediate problem that NPEs are being thrown if authority is
invalid or hosts are not resolved. 
  There may be alternative approaches to handle the bad inputs to SecurityUtil methods in
more elegant ways, but that can be taken outside this jira.
