Subject Re: example usage of s3 file system
Date Wed, 29 Aug 2012 03:00:26 GMT
So looking at the source and single stepping through a simple test case I have to make a directory
using FileSystem.mkdir()

I see that I am getting a 404 (nothing new there).  However the code that is throwing this
looks like this below.  Note the comment about being "brittle".  Seems its looking for ResponseCode=404
except in this case I am getting "ResponseCode: 404"

Should I just forward this to the developer list or has anyone come over this before?

public FileMetadata retrieveMetadata(String key) throws IOException {
    try {
      S3Object object = s3Service.getObjectDetails(bucket, key);
      return new FileMetadata(key, object.getContentLength(),
    } catch (S3ServiceException e) {
      // Following is brittle. Is there a better way?
      if (e.getMessage().contains("ResponseCode=404")) {
        return null;
      if (e.getCause() instanceof IOException) {
        throw (IOException) e.getCause();
      throw new S3Exception(e);
