Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8707) FileSink doesn't appear to close its file
Date Thu, 16 Aug 2012 17:43:38 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8707?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13436146#comment-13436146
] 

Steve Loughran commented on HADOOP-8707:
----------------------------------------

# there's no obvious place for it to close unless MetricsSink added a close method that was
called on shutdown.
# the {{FileSink}} would need to differentiate {{System.out}} from streams it should not close,
either explicitly or by some {{Writer}} subclass that didn't relay {{close()}} methods.

If someone really wanted to use {{FileSink}} in production, the class should be set up to
close the file on a {{flush()}} and re-open with an append on demand.

> Looking at FileSink, I can see it opening a fileWriter in the {{init()}} method, but
it never closes it.
