Ding Yuan commented on HBASE-12187:

Hi Stack,
I'm the author of this paper you mentioned. Thanks for your attentions. 
I understand that it may be more convenient to build the checks implemented by aspirator into
the tools you guys already use. I am very happy to help here. Do you think it would be helpful
to build these checks into FindBugs or other tools you guys use? If so, I'm happy to give
it a shot.

> It describes 'catastrophic failures', especially issues where exceptions are thrown but
not properly handled.  Their static analysis tool Aspirator turns up a bunch of the obvious
offenders (Lets add to test-patch.sh alongside findbugs?).  This issue is about going through
code base making sub-issues to root out these and others (Don't we have the test described
in figure #6 already? I thought we did?  If we don't, need to add).
