Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-4156) Seeking to a negative position should throw an IOE
Date Tue, 06 Nov 2012 21:44:12 GMT
Eli Collins created HDFS-4156:

             Summary: Seeking to a negative position should throw an IOE
                 Key: HDFS-4156
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4156
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-alpha, 1.0.0
            Reporter: Eli Collins

Credit to [~vanzin] for finding this. If you seek() to a position before the start of the
file, the seek() call succeeds, and the following read() call throws an NPE. A more friendly
approach would be to fail the seek() call.
