Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-1841) YARN ignores/overrides explicit security settings
Date Mon, 17 Mar 2014 22:20:51 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-1841?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13938479#comment-13938479

Oleg Zhurakousky commented on YARN-1841:


Unfortunately I still disagree and here is why. The API in question is a very public API which
one uses during the implementation of AM. The fact that it behaves differently once invoked
from the AM vs. just a simple API call to a remote cluster is what I am questioning. Nothing
stops me from doing the later. Not a comment, doc, javadoc, warning message or anything else.
In fact the error message I see is completely misleading and took me on the wrong path of
figuring out the cause which resulted in this JIRA (which is different from YARN-944). The
current API is not designed in a way to help someone like myself not to make such a mistake.
So, from that perspective its still a problem and while I won't be fighting over it by re-opening
the issue, I would suggest to rethink. Let's just say that I know a thing or two about the
API design but I also play for the same team (HWX) and while I am freely expressing my concerns
with good intentions, someone else may not have as much patience and fall back to YARN alternatives
(quite a few, depending on how you look). Anyway, I'll leave it up to you.
