Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-8409) Address Hadoop path related issues on Windows
Date Fri, 18 May 2012 09:40:10 GMT
Ivan Mitic created HADOOP-8409:
----------------------------------

             Summary: Address Hadoop path related issues on Windows
                 Key: HADOOP-8409
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8409
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: fs, test, util
    Affects Versions: 1.0.0
            Reporter: Ivan Mitic


There are multiple places in prod and test code where Windows paths are not handled properly.
From a high level this could be summarized with:
1. Windows paths are not necessarily valid DFS paths (while Unix paths are)
2. Windows paths are not necessarily valid URIs (while Unix paths are)

#1 causes a number of tests to fail because they implicitly assume that local paths are valid
DFS paths (by extracting the DFS test path from for example "test.build.data" property)

#2 causes issues when URIs are directly created on path strings passed in by the user
