Subject [jira] [Resolved] (HDFS-4874) create with OVERWRITE deletes existing file without checking the lease: feature or a bug.
Date Tue, 04 Jun 2013 14:01:20 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4874?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Daryn Sharp resolved HDFS-4874.
-------------------------------

      Resolution: Not A Problem
    Hadoop Flags: Incompatible change

I fully agree with Suresh.  An overwrite is semantically a delete & create.  Since delete
isn't influenced by a lease, neither should an overwrite.  Having a lease prevent overwrite/delete
implies the lease somewhat extends to the directory contents (delete is a directory level
operation) which doesn't make since a file lease is a file level lock.

> create with OVERWRITE flag will remove a file under construction even if the issuing
client does not hold a lease on the file.
> It could be a bug or the feature that applications rely upon.
