Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-12045) Enable LocalFileSystem#setTimes to change atime
Date Mon, 29 Jun 2015 23:34:06 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-12045?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14606655#comment-14606655

Chris Nauroth commented on HADOOP-12045:

[~fjk], thank you for the update.

Unfortunately, the new symlink tests do not pass on Windows.  This is a consequence of the
way symlink integration works on Windows right now.  On Windows, a call to {{RawLocalFileSystem#getFileLinkStatus}}
returns a {{FileStatus}} populated with the symlink as the path, but the other attributes
are populated from the symlink target.  This breaks the assertions that calling {{setTimes}}
on the link doesn't alter the times reported by subsequent {{getFileLinkStatus}} calls.

This is a known limitation unrelated to the current patch, and we already have comments marking
TODO's around native stat support for Windows.  I think it's appropriate to skip these tests
on Windows for now.  You can do that by adding overrides in {{TestSymlinkLocalFS}} for each
of the new test methods added to {{SymlinkBaseTest}}.  The override just checks if it's running
on Windows, and then delegates up to the superclass to run the test.  Here is an existing

  public void testCreateDanglingLink() throws IOException {
    // Dangling symlinks are not supported on Windows local file system.

After that's done, I suspect it will be the final version of the patch.  Thanks for sticking
with this!
