Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-3643) hdfsJniHelper.c unchecked string pointers
Date Mon, 29 Oct 2012 22:19:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-3643?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13486425#comment-13486425

Andy Isaacson commented on HDFS-3643:

bq. Wouldn't it be a string which comes from the signature? eg something like "Ljava/lang/String;"
or "J"?

No, it's one of the constants JINT, JLONG, etc.  Valid values are ASCII alphanumeric, but
in the error case it could be an arbitrary {{char}} so printing it with {{%c}} is unlikely
to be helpful.  I suppose casting to {{(unsigned char)returnType}} helps if char is signed
and <0.  I'll do that and upload a new patch.

> This loop needs to check for {{'\0'}}. Also the following {{if/else if/else if}} cascade
doesn't handle unexpected values.
