Subject [jira] Updated: (MAPREDUCE-1418) LinuxTaskController binary misses validation of arguments passed for relative components in some cases.
Date Mon, 15 Mar 2010 14:00:27 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1418?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Hemanth Yamijala updated MAPREDUCE-1418:

    Attachment: MAPREDUCE-1418.patch

Attaching a patch implementing the changes.


- Fixed all the initialization calls (for user, job, task, log and distributed cache files)
to call check_path_for_relative_components.
- Modified the way in which error code was tracked and handled in the methods so I could return
a relevant error code when relative components are found.
- Added tests for all the conditions. For testing initialization of job, task and distributed
cache, the approach followed is that we create the original directories and some dummy directories.
Then we launch the task controller exe with some of the arguments tweaked to have relative
components. We verify the call fails with an ExitCodeException with the right error code.
For user and log initialization, I write a taskcontroller.cfg with relative paths in mapred
local directories and hadoop.log.dir and verify the same failures. The latter approach is
needed because passing relative paths in the command line arguments will not trigger the code
path we want to exercise in these two cases.

All task-controller tests are passing with this patch, as also test-patch.

> The function {{int check_path_for_relative_components(char * path)}} should be used to
validate the absence of relative components before any operation is done on those paths. This
is missed in all the {{initialize*()}} functions, as Hemanth pointed out offline.
