Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-6262) HDFS doesn't raise FileNotFoundException if the source of a rename() is missing
Date Wed, 23 Apr 2014 23:48:19 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-6262?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13979105#comment-13979105
] 

Suresh Srinivas commented on HDFS-6262:
---------------------------------------

[~stevel@apache.org], given rename had different behaviors on different file systems, we did
not want to change it and leave it alone (as discussed in HADOOP-6240). That way applications
that are dealing with or dependent different behaviors of the file systems continue to work.
I think we should deprecate old rename and and not test it for consistent behavior. Lets only
test the new rename for consistency across FileSystems.

> HDFS's {{rename(src, dest)}} returns false if src does not exist -all the other filesystems
raise {{FileNotFoundException}}
> This behaviour is defined in {{FSDirectory.unprotectedRenameTo()}} -the attempt is logged,
but the operation then just returns false.
> I propose changing the behaviour of {{DistributedFileSystem}} to be the same as that
of the others -and of {{FileContext}}, which does reject renames with nonexistent sources
