Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-4559) WebHDFS does not allow resolution of Symlinks
Date Wed, 06 Mar 2013 18:42:13 GMT
Plamen Jeliazkov created HDFS-4559:

             Summary: WebHDFS does not allow resolution of Symlinks
                 Key: HDFS-4559
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4559
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.0.3-alpha
            Reporter: Plamen Jeliazkov
            Assignee: Plamen Jeliazkov
             Fix For: 3.0.0, 2.0.4-beta

WebHDFS allows you to create symlinks via the CREATESYMLINK operation, but the GETFILEINFO
operation specifically calls the getFileInfo() method of the NameNodeRpcServer which does
not resolve symlinks.

I propose adding a parameter to GETFILEINFO such that if true will call getFileLinkInfo()
rather than getFileInfo() which will resolve any symlinks.
