Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2235) Hftp doesn't support paths with semicolons
Date Tue, 09 Aug 2011 22:11:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2235?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13081964#comment-13081964

Daryn Sharp commented on HDFS-2235:

The relationship between some of the methods seems odd.  I haven't looked at the entire patch,
but I've noticed the following:

# {{getNamenodeFileURL(Path path)}} is encoding the path and encoding a query string with
the ugi, then calls {{getNamenodeURL(String path, String query)}}.  Then other methods like
{{HftpFileSystem#open}} are doing the same encoding as {{getNamenodeFileURL(Path path)}} before
calling {{getNamenodeURL(String path, String query)}}?  Shouldn't the 1-arg just call the
2-arg with a null query string?  Then the 2-arg should do the encoding like the 1-arg used
to, thus the callers of the 2-arg aren't all doing the same redundant work?
# {{URIUtil.encodeQuery}} is being called on the entire query instead of the values of the
query.  This means that any special characters (ie. &, =, etc) in a value can be used
to exploit the parsing of the query string.  I think you need something like:
String encodeKVP(String key, String value) {
  return URIUtil.encodeQuery(key) + "=" + URIUtil.encodeQuery(value);
# There's a lot of redundancy in the opening of connections, ie:
HttpURLConnection connection = openConnection(
    "/listPaths" + ServletUtil.encodePath(path),
    ServletUtil.encodeQuery("ugi=" + getUgiParameter() + (recur? "&recursive=yes" : "")));
Perhaps those could be simplified to avoid redundancy and improve readability:
HttpURLConnection connection = openServletURL("listPaths", path, encodeKVP("recursive", "yes"));
The method could automatically tack on the ugi on to the query string so every caller doesn't
have to do it.
