Subject [jira] [Updated] (HDFS-5236) Change PathBasedCacheDirective APIs to be a single value rather than batch API
Date Fri, 20 Sep 2013 23:56:51 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-5236?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Andrew Wang updated HDFS-5236:

    Attachment: hdfs-5236-1.patch

Patch attached. Included a few other changes too while I was knuckle-deep in the RPC code:

* Removed Fallible and reworked the batch APIs to be single value
* Added wrapper functions in DFSClient to unwrap RemoteExceptions for the client
* Made the various types of exceptions also have a single String value constructor so they
can be remotely unwrapped
* Beefed up the testing in {{TestPathBasedCacheRequests}} to test both NameNodeRpcServer and
DFS APIs, added some additional null/empty string handling in the process.

> It's kind of awkward that APIs like {{addPathBasedCacheDirective}} take a list of Directives
and return a list of Fallibles, since end users don't see a checked exception and need to
check each Fallible. It also complicates HDFS code. Let's think about switching these APIs
to instead take only a single Directive.
