Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-7771) NPE when running hdfs dfs -copyToLocal, -get etc
Date Wed, 26 Oct 2011 18:27:32 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7771?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13136194#comment-13136194

Daryn Sharp commented on HADOOP-7771:

    * @throws IOException if this object does not exist or is not a directory
   public PathData getPathDataForChild(PathData child) throws IOException {
-    if (!stat.isDirectory()) {
+    if (exists && !stat.isDirectory()) {

If the javadoc is true, I think should be:
{{if (!exists || !stat.isDirectory())}}

The use of {{isDstDir}} appears wrong and is duplication of most of the prior logic.  Why
is this flag used to force {{processPath()}} to treat all recursive destinations as directories
if the top level dest is a directory?  Especially if there's 1 source dir arg?  This method
is invoked recursive so I'm not sure why it assumes everything is a directory if the top level
dst is a directory?

Are you sure the {{PathData}} change isn't all that's needed?
