Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-9735) Deprecated configuration property can overwrite non-deprecated property
Date Tue, 16 Jul 2013 07:26:48 GMT
Jing Zhao created HADOOP-9735:

             Summary: Deprecated configuration property can overwrite non-deprecated property
                 Key: HADOOP-9735
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9735
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 3.0.0, 2.1.0-beta
            Reporter: Jing Zhao
            Assignee: Jing Zhao
            Priority: Minor
         Attachments: deprecated-conf.test.patch

For the current Configuration implementation, if a conf file contains definitions for both
a non-deprecated property and its corresponding deprecated property (e.g., fs.defaultFS and
fs.default.name), the latter will overwrite the previous one. In the fs.defaultFS example,
this may cause client failover not work. It may be better to keep the non-deprecated property's
value unchanged.

In the meanwhile, Configuration#getPropertySources may return wrong source information for
a deprecated property. E.g., after setting fs.defaultFS, Configuration#getPropertySources("fs.default.name")
will return "because fs.defaultFS is deprecated".
