Subject Re: IgniteConfiguration.igniteWorkDir only works one time
Date Thu, 28 Jul 2016 11:00:52 GMT
I believe this was done for convenience so that we can get working
directory from any code piece.

This approach looks wrong to me, though. First, it breaks isolation between
nodes. This becomes more and more critical as we implement more
integrations and as users draw more attention to our client nodes. I
believe that soon starting several nodes in the same process will become
absolutely normal use case. Second, it hides bug. For example, we have lots
of unit tests which start multiple nodes in the same process. And I clearly
remember how we almost missed extremely critical bug with marshaller, which
could broke the whole cluster.

Having said that, I believe must fix that in Java ASAP. There should be no
static work dir variable. It should reside somewhere inside kernal context
or be explicitly set to* IgniteConfiguration.workDirectory* when node
starts. The second option is better, because in this case user will have
access to working directory as well.

Any more ideas?
