Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-4153) Handle RegionAlreadyInTransitionException in AssignmentManager
Date Tue, 13 Sep 2011 18:25:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4153?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13103858#comment-13103858

ramkrishna.s.vasudevan commented on HBASE-4153:

Throwing exception when we get RegionalreadyInTransition is fine but there are 2 problems
-> If we try HBaseAdmin.move() or HBaseAdmin.unassign() the ClosedRegionHandler will call
assign() and in this flow if we throw
RegionAlreadyInTransitionException is thrown then we cannot bring the exception upto the user
as EventHandler.run() catches the exception
So only for HBaseAdmin.assign() we can get the exception propogated upto the user.

-> If we make the assign() to throw exception then we need to handle it in many places.

So i have just returned once we get RegionalreadyInTransition Exception.

Another interesting thing observed was current in RegionalreadyInTransition.java
public RegionAlreadyInTransitionException(String action, String region) {
we were passing 2 args.  Now in the master if i had to decode this exception and unwrap the
exception I was not able
to do so because
private IOException instantiateException(Class<? extends IOException> cls)
     throws Exception {
   Constructor<? extends IOException> cn = cls.getConstructor(String.class);
This is what we are expecting a single arg String constructor in RemoteException.java.  Hence
i have done one modification of
passing the exact exception msg in the OpenRegionHandler and CloseRegionHandler

and just
public RegionAlreadyInTransitionException(String action) {

> Question: Looking at this patch again, if we throw a RegionAlreadyInTransitionException,
won't we just assign the region elsewhere though RegionAlreadyInTransitionException in at
least one case here is saying that the region is already open on this regionserver?

Need to add special cases for assign and unassign.
