>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Bug

> 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.
