Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-9374) Client requires write access to hbase.local.dir unnecessarily
Date Thu, 02 Jan 2014 18:17:53 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-9374?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13860476#comment-13860476

Nick Dimiduk commented on HBASE-9374:

This patch works around the problem, doesn't really solve it. What happens when this code
runs on the RegionServer, the directory isn't created/doesn't exist, and only the warning
is printed? Does the process limp along in a broken state?

Nit: the test doesn't explicitly create this condition, it just assumes the user running the
test won't have access to that path. It also assumes a UNIX directory structure, so will not
work on Windows.

from the dev list.

> It appears that as of HBASE-1936, we now require that client applications have write
access to hbase.local.dir. This is because ProtobufUtil instantiates a DyanamicClassLoader
as part of static initialization. This classloader is used for instantiating Comparators,
Filters, and Exceptions.
> {quote}
> Client applications do not need to use DynamicClassLoader and so should not require this
write access.
