Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-7771) NPE when running hdfs dfs -copyToLocal, -get etc
Date Mon, 31 Oct 2011 19:49:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7771?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13140493#comment-13140493

Daryn Sharp commented on HADOOP-7771:

John's patch introduces at least these bugs:
# Copy multiple args to a non-existent destination is supposed to fail.  The patch auto-creates
the destination as a directory, thus shorting out the check in the parent class.  Ex. "fs
-cp f1 f2 f3 dir" should fail if dir doesn't exist, the patch changed it to succeed.
# If the source is a directory, and the destination doesn't exist, then the source is effectively
supposed to be renamed as the destination.  The auto-creates the destination as a directory
and copies the source into the destination.  Ex. "fs -get dir does-not-exist" should create
"does-not-exist" with the contents of "dir".  This patch creates "does-not-exist/dir".
# If a directory is copied to a file, the exception thrown is not using the PathData string.

In effect, we are adding bugs, and trading a NPE with copying to the wrong destination, so
it's a wash as far as testing is concerned.

FWIW, early this year, I ported all this copy/move code as part of the FsShell redesign. 
I realized I introduced bugs way back in June or July and prepared a patch.  I thought I lost
the patch, so John started working this jira, but I dug it up the patch this weekend.  I stripped
out all the extra functionality that was added in that patch and posted the result.
