             Summary: FileSystem#length returns zero for symlinks on windows+java6
                 Key: HADOOP-8872
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8872
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1-win
            Reporter: Ivan Mitic
            Assignee: Ivan Mitic


RawLocalFileSystem does not work well with symbolic links on Windows. Specifically, calling
FileSystem#lengh on the path that is a symlink will return zero. This causes problems in some
objects that use LocalFileSystem to access local files. One example is a SequenceFile.

The issue is caused by Java6 File#length returning zero for symbolic links on Windows. On
Java7, we will no longer have this problem.
