Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-6305) WebHdfs response decoding may throw RuntimeExceptions
Date Tue, 29 Apr 2014 20:37:23 GMT
Daryn Sharp created HDFS-6305:

             Summary: WebHdfs response decoding may throw RuntimeExceptions
                 Key: HDFS-6305
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-6305
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: webhdfs
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-alpha, 3.0.0
            Reporter: Daryn Sharp
            Assignee: Daryn Sharp
            Priority: Critical

WebHdfs does not guard against exceptions while decoding the response payload.  The json parser
will throw RunTime exceptions on malformed responses.  The json decoding routines do not validate
the expected fields are present which may cause NPEs.
