Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-9651) Filesystems to throw FileAlreadyExistsException in createFile(path, overwrite=false) when the file exists
Date Tue, 18 Jun 2013 14:17:25 GMT
Steve Loughran created HADOOP-9651:
--------------------------------------

             Summary: Filesystems to throw FileAlreadyExistsException in createFile(path,
overwrite=false) when the file exists
                 Key: HADOOP-9651
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9651
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Sub-task
          Components: fs
    Affects Versions: 2.1.0-beta
            Reporter: Steve Loughran
            Priority: Minor


While HDFS and other filesystems throw a {{FileAlreadyExistsException}} if you try to create
a file that exists and you have set {{overwrite=false}}, {{RawLocalFileSystem}} throws a plain
{{IOException}}. This makes it impossible to distinguish a create operation failing from a
fixable problem (the file is there) and something more fundamental.
