Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8487) Address test failures related to Windows paths not being valid DFS paths
Date Thu, 07 Jun 2012 21:48:23 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8487?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13291342#comment-13291342

Ivan Mitic commented on HADOOP-8487:

bq. why is WebHdfsFileSystem special cased in a few instances?
Test utility class {{FileSystemTestHelper}} is used by two tests, {{TestFSMainOperationsLocalFileSystem}}
and {{TestFSMainOperationsWebHdfs}}. The former test uses DFS and the latter uses LocalFileSystem.
I could change {{FileSystemTestHelper}} to always use {{DFS_TEST_ROOT_DIR}} but in that case,
local files would be created under a path different than {{System.getProperty("test.build.data")}}
what I was trying to avoid in my changes.

> There is a number of tests that fail on Windows because Hadoop's distributed file system
does not allow colon character in DFS paths. Specifically, passing in the following path to
> {code}/c:/some/path{code}
> would fail DFSUtil#isValidName check and cause the current operation to fail. Any test
that is using local absolute path in the context of the DFS will fail because of this.
