Subject [jira] Commented: (MAPREDUCE-1579) archive: check and possibly replace the space charater in paths
Date Wed, 10 Mar 2010 22:11:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1579?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12843794#action_12843794

Rodrigo Schmidt commented on MAPREDUCE-1579:

Yes, that's exactly what I mean. The code looks much better with HarEntry.

Another thing I just noticed in your path is that you are calling checkSpace inside relPathToRoot()
and outside it on writeTopLevelDirs(). 

I think it is better to check for spaces outside relPathToRoot() since checking for spaces
is something that we would like to do in the beginning of the execution only (and relPathToRoot()
is an auxiliary function we might want to use several times throughout the execution). 

If you agree with that, you can just remove checkSpace from inside relPathToRoot() and place
it also after the relPathToRoot() call on method archive(). 

If you prefer to leave the checkSpace() call inside relPathToRoot(), then you can probably
remove the checkSpace(relPath) call on writeTopLevelDirs().

> Since the space character is used as a separator in the index files, it won't work if
there are spaces in the path (see also HADOOP-6591).  The archive tools should 
> # detect if there are spaces in the paths and 
> # provide an option to replace it with some other characters.
