Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-13448) S3Guard: Define MetadataStore interface.
Date Thu, 15 Sep 2016 22:09:22 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-13448?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15494659#comment-15494659

Aaron Fabbri commented on HADOOP-13448:

Another design question.  I'd like to propose we require all clients to supply absolute paths
to the MetadataStore.


I just tried to support a combination of relative and absolute paths in the LocalMetadataStore.
 I wrote some new tests and found that:

- This requires both MetadataStore and DirListingMetadata to be able to resolve relative and
absolute paths.  I feel better separation is to leave this to the FileSystem clients: they
already have to deal with this.    DirListingMetadata should be a stupid container, not something
that knows how to resolve relative paths against working dirs.  If DirListingMetadata#put()
can take a relative path, then it needs to resolve it against the working dir so it can ensure
it is a proper child of the dir path. The working dir may differ between clients sharing a
metadata store.  This implies that implementations need to track an absolute path in addition
to the relative one allowed in the DirListingMetadata.  This is extra complexity, garbage,

- In general the logic becomes more error-prone to handle correctly when both types of paths
are allowed.

- FileSystem clients (i.e. s3a) already have to do this logic.  

In short, I propose that methods in MetadataStore and DirListingMetadata which take a path
will use Precondition checks to enforce that those paths are absolute.  Thoughts [~cnauroth]?
