Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-5167) Escaping occurences of encodedValues
Date Sat, 04 Jun 2016 20:51:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-5167?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15315628#comment-15315628
] 

Varun Saxena commented on YARN-5167:
------------------------------------

Maybe we can add a note in javadoc stating that Separator#encode version with varargs should
be preferred while encoding multiple separators instead of calling single separator version
of Separator#encode multiple times.

Also, as we are using pre-compiled patterns now, we can probably use it while calling split
in Separator#splitEncoded as well.

> We had earlier decided to punt on this, but in discussing YARN-5109 we thought it would
be best to just be safe rather than sorry later on.
> Encoded sequences can occur in the original string, especially in case of "foreign key"
if we decide to have lookups.
> For example, space is encoded as %2$.
> Encoding "String with %2$ in it" would decode to "String with   in it".
> We though we should first escape existing occurrences of encoded strings by prefixing
a backslash (even if there is already a backslash that should be ok). Then we should replace
all unencoded strings.
> On the way out, we should replace all occurrences of our encoded string to the original
except when it is prefixed by an escape character. Lastly we should strip off the one additional
backslash in front of each remaining (escaped) sequence.
> If we add the following entry to TestSeparator#testEncodeDecode() that demonstrates what
this jira should accomplish:
> {code}
>     testEncodeDecode("Double-escape %2$ and %3$ or \\%2$ or \\%3$, nor  \\\\%2$ = no
problem!", Separator.QUALIFIERS,
>         Separator.VALUES, Separator.SPACE, Separator.TAB);
> {code}
