Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-10397) Distcp should ignore -delete option if -diff option is provided instead of exiting
Date Mon, 16 May 2016 21:11:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-10397?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15285308#comment-15285308

Jing Zhao commented on HDFS-10397:

Thanks for updating the patch, Mingliang. The current patch looks good to me in general. One
580	    if (useDiff && deleteMissing) {
581	      // -delete and -diff are mutually exclusive. For backward compatibility,
582	      // we ignore the -delete option here, instead of throwing an
583	      // IllegalArgumentException. See HDFS-10397 for more discussion.
584	      OptionsParser.LOG.warn("-delete and -diff are mutually exclusive. " +
585	          "The -delete option will be ignored.");
586	      setDeleteMissing(false);
587	    }

This logic should be moved to the beginning of the {{valid}} method. I.e., the "-deleteMissing"
should be bypassed before it causes any exception along with some other option settings. A
new unit test will also be helpful for this scenario.

+1 after addressing the comment.

> In distcp, {{-delete}} and {{-diff}} options are mutually exclusive. [HDFS-8828] brought
strictly checking which makes the existing applications (or scripts) that work just fine with
both {{-delete}} and {{-diff}} options previously stop performing because of the {{java.lang.IllegalArgumentException:
Diff is valid only with update options}} exception.
> To make it backward incompatible, we can ignore the {{-delete}} option, given {{-diff}}
option, instead of exiting the program. Along with that, we can print a warning message saying
that _Diff is valid only with update options, and -delete option is ignored_.
