Subject [Impala-ASF-CR] IMPALA-2235: Fix current db when shell auto-reconnects
Date Tue, 14 Nov 2017 23:26:14 GMT
Hello Philip Zeyliger, Tim Armstrong, 

I'd like you to reexamine a change. Please visit

to look at the new patch set (#5).

Change subject: IMPALA-2235: Fix current db when shell auto-reconnects

IMPALA-2235: Fix current db when shell auto-reconnects

The ImpalaShell didn't issue the 'USE <current-db>' command after
reconnecting to the Impala daemon. Therefore the client session
used the default DB after reconnection, not the previously selected DB.

Setting the current DB is done by the _validate_database method.
Before this commit it appended the "use <db>" command to the
command queue of the Cmd class. But, at this point we might already
have commands in the command queue that will run before the
"use <db>" command. In case of reconnection, we want to invoke
the USE command right away.

Also, the command processed by the precmd() method can entirely skip
the command queue, therefore it is not enough to insert the USE
command to the front of the command queue. We need to issue the
USE command with the onecmd() method to execute it immediately.

I extended the _validate_database method with an "immediately" flag.
If this flag is true, _validate_database will use the onecmd() method.
Otherwise, it will append the USE command to the command queue to
maintain the previous behaviour.

I added a new automated test suite named
to the "custom cluster" tests. It sets the default database, and after
reconnection it checks if the shell set it again automatically.

One test case checks if the shell set the DB after manually reconnecting
to the impala daemon by issuing the CONNECT command.
The other test case checks if the shell set the DB after automatic
reconnection due to cluster restart.

I needed to backup the impala shell history file because I didn't
want to pollute it by the test cases (just like the way it is done in
tests/shell/ I created utility functions for
this in tests/shell/ and now and
the newly created test suite are using these utility functions.
