Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-12191) Bzip2Factory is not thread safe
Date Thu, 22 Oct 2015 19:10:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-12191?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14969689#comment-14969689

Samer Adra commented on HADOOP-12191:

It would perform better if this method only performed the logic the first time it was called,
and cached the result for all subsequent calls, because whether or not the Bzip2 library is
available should be the same throughout the lifetime of the application -- no need to figure
it out every time.
Also, the catch(Throwable) in this method is kind of scary.

 A thread can return false from this method despite logging the fact that was going to return
true due to manipulations of the static boolean from another thread calling the same method.
