Subject [jira] [Updated] (HADOOP-8524) Allow users to get source of a Configuration parameter

Harsh J updated HADOOP-8524:
----------------------------

    Attachment: HADOOP-8524.patch

Hey,

That makes complete sense and I am also perfectly fine with the idea of marking this as unstable.
I do love the idea of proper traceability and can work on it if no one's begun yet (or if
you're not gonna be driving it yet). Do file one and chalk it out.

This request arose out of Oozie configs however at my end, not purely MR but yes the traceability
will help there too.

I've attached a patch to mark the API unstable.

Thanks for the comment and for taking a look quickly!

> When we load the various XMLs via the Configuration class, the source of the XML file
(filename) is usually kept in the Configuration class but not exposed programmatically. It
is presently exposed as comments such as "Loaded from mapred-site.xml" in the XML dump/serialization
but can't be accessed otherwise (Via the Configuration API).
> For debugging/etc. purposes, it may be useful to expose this safely (such as an API for
"where did this property come from?" queries for a specific property, via an API.
