Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-4148) disallow modification on RO snapshots
Date Mon, 12 Nov 2012 19:35:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4148?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13495539#comment-13495539

Aaron T. Myers commented on HDFS-4148:

How about a hybrid solution along the following lines:

* Keep SnapshotException as it is used today, i.e. only for snaphot-related operations.
* Introduce a new SnapshotAccessControlException which extends AccessControlException.
* Have this patch throw the new SnapshotAccessControlException wherever a user tries to modify
a RO snapshot.

This way programs which currently handle AccessControlException won't have to be changed,
but programs that do want to differentiate on this basis will be able to catch a specific
exception. This also has the advantage of not conflating client access errors with snapshot
operations exceptions, which I think are semantically different types of errors.
