Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-4559) WebHDFS does not allow resolution of Symlinks
Date Thu, 07 Mar 2013 01:09:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4559?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13595383#comment-13595383

Plamen Jeliazkov commented on HDFS-4559:
----------------------------------------

After some debugging it turns out this issue is actually caused by symlinks not working within
HDFS. Making a child JIRA to discuss that issue.

> 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.
