Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAPREDUCE-4568) Throw "early" exception when duplicate files or archives are found in distributed cache
Date Tue, 09 Oct 2012 06:30:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-4568?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13472173#comment-13472173

Arun C Murthy commented on MAPREDUCE-4568:
------------------------------------------

Ok, I spent an inordinate amount of time into this, but I finally am ready to give up.

Unfortunately none of the DistributedCache apis (i.e. DistributedCache.addCache(File|Archive)
or Job.addCache(File|Archive) ) have an exception specification - this means we'll need to
resort to throw RuntimeException or such which I'm not a fan of...

For now, I feel the best we can do (without breaking compat) is to just document this and
leave it as it is... 

Thoughts?

> According to #MAPREDUCE-4549, Hadoop 2.x throws exception if duplicates found in cacheFiles
or cacheArchives. The exception  throws during job submission.
> This JIRA is to throw the exception ==early== when it is first added to the Distributed
Cache through addCacheFile or addFileToClassPath.
> It will help the client to decide whether to fail-fast or continue w/o the duplicated
entries.
> Alternatively, Hadoop could provide a knob where user will choose whether to throw error(
coming behavior) or silently ignore (old behavior).
