Subject [jira] [Updated] (HADOOP-9043) winutils can create unusable symlinks
Date Wed, 17 Apr 2013 23:01:17 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9043?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Chris Nauroth updated HADOOP-9043:

    Attachment: HADOOP-9043.trunk.4.patch

Here is version 4 of the trunk patch, with the following changes since last time:

# {{RawLocalFs#getPathWithoutSchemeAndAuthority}} now returns {{File}} instead of {{String}}.
# Added comment in {{TestLocalFSFileContextSymlink}} stating that dangling symlinks are not
supported on Windows.
# Added tests in {{TestWinUtils}} for asserting that winutils symlink will return an error
if attempting to pass it paths with forward slashes in either link or target.  The earlier
version of the symlink.c patch only checked target, so I also changed that to check both link
and target.

How does this look?  Once I have +1 on the trunk patch, I'll prep the equivalent branch-1-win

> In general, the winutils symlink command rejects attempts to create symlinks targeting
a destination file that does not exist.  However, if given a symlink destination with forward
slashes pointing at a file that does exist, then it creates the symlink with the forward slashes,
and then attempts to open the file through the symlink will fail.
