Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-8542) WebHDFS getHomeDirectory behavior does not match specification
Date Sat, 20 Jun 2015 00:12:01 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-8542?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14594161#comment-14594161

Jakob Homan commented on HDFS-8542:

* The checkstyle ding is a bit convoluted, but probably correct since the matching brace is
nested pretty heavily.  Let's make checkstyle happy and give it what it wants.
* Please remove the println from the unit test
* Not sure it's worth caching the response here.  Home directories *shouldn't* change, but
there's no huge reason why they couldn't between calls.  Since there's no way to clear the
cache and this call is pretty light, I'd rather not cache.  Not caching will simplify the
* The existing org/apache/hadoop/hdfs/web/TestWebHdfsFileSystemContract.java is incorrectly
testing the getHomeDirectory method:
{code}    {//test GETHOMEDIRECTORY
      final URL url = webhdfs.toUrl(GetOpParam.Op.GETHOMEDIRECTORY, root);
      final HttpURLConnection conn = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection();
      final Map<?, ?> m = WebHdfsTestUtil.connectAndGetJson(
          conn, HttpServletResponse.SC_OK);
since it's calling the static getHomeDirectoryString method rather than the instance getHomeDirectory
method.  We should fix this and deprecate the static getHomeDirectoryString method since there's
no use (or callers) for it.

Otherwise looks good.  Thanks.

> Per the [spec|https://hadoop.apache.org/docs/current/hadoop-project-dist/hadoop-hdfs/WebHDFS.html#Get_Home_Directory],
WebHDFS provides a REST endpoint for getting the user's home directory:
> {noformat}Submit a HTTP GET request.
> curl -i "http://<HOST>:<PORT>/webhdfs/v1/?op=GETHOMEDIRECTORY"{noformat}
> However, WebHDFSFileSystem.java does not use this, instead building the home [directory
> {code}  /** @return the home directory. */
>   public static String getHomeDirectoryString(final UserGroupInformation ugi) {
>     return "/user/" + ugi.getShortUserName();
>   }
>   @Override
>   public Path getHomeDirectory() {
>     return makeQualified(new Path(getHomeDirectoryString(ugi)));
>   }{code}
> The WebHDFSFileSystem client should call to the REST service to determine the home directory.
