Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8953) Shell PathData parsing failures on Windows
Date Wed, 31 Oct 2012 05:51:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8953?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13487564#comment-13487564
] 

Chris Nauroth commented on HADOOP-8953:
---------------------------------------

Some ideas have been discussed for refactoring Path and its numerous call sites.  That's a
fairly large scope considering how many other classes are coupled to Path, and the fact that
many callers assume return values of a certain format to use in additional string concatenation.

At this point, we'd prefer to work towards full test pass on Windows with minimal changes
to the current trunk code, and then refactor slowly towards the ideal state after we have
those tests as a safety net.  This would be a conservative approach towards improving the
codebase's path handling logic.

> Several test suites fail on Windows, apparently due to Windows-specific path parsing
bugs in PathData.
