Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-240) Should HDFS restrict the names used for files?
Date Wed, 24 Feb 2010 07:05:28 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-240?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12837656#action_12837656
] 

Eli Collins commented on HDFS-240:
----------------------------------

+1 to restricting names.  Since Paths are URIs the restrictions need to jive with RFC 1630
and RFC 3986. We should also consider file names allowed by applications that use Hadoop.

> When reviewing the consequences of Hadoop:6017 (the name system could not start because
a file name interpreted as a regex caused a fault), the discussion turned to improving the
test set for file system functions by broadening the set of names used for testing. Presently,
HDFS allows any name without a slash. _Should the space of names be restricted?_ If most funny
names are unintended, maybe the user would benefit from an early error indication. A contrary
view is that restricting names is so 20th-century.
> Should be or shouldn't we?
