Subject [jira] [Updated] (HDFS-6422) getfattr in CLI doesn't throw exception or return non-0 return code when xattr doesn't exist
Date Wed, 16 Jul 2014 21:15:07 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-6422?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Andrew Wang updated HDFS-6422:
------------------------------

    Priority: Blocker  (was: Major)

I looked into this more with [~clamb] and there's a compatibility concern with some code in
WebHDFS / XAttrNameParam:

{code}
  private static Domain DOMAIN = new Domain(NAME, 
      Pattern.compile("^(user\\.|trusted\\.|system\\.|security\\.).+"));
{code}

Doing client-side validation of the namespace means we can't later add new namespaces and
have them also be accessible by an old client. Since we already do server-side validation,
I think we can just remove this check.

Let's fix this before we release 2.5.0. Raising priority to a blocker since it's a compat
concern and should be easy to fix.

> If you do

> # file: /foo

> It should print an exception and return a non-0 return code instead.
