HDB : PXF Query fails with "ERROR: remote component error (500) Problem accessing /gpdb/v4/Fragmenter/getFragments"

Problem

Select query against an external table using PXF protocol fails with the below error message

gpdb=# select * from test_data2;
ERROR:  remote component error (500) from '172.28.9.251:50070': Problem accessing /gpdb/v4/Fragmenter/getFragments. Reason:     Server Error   Caused by:  java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: java.net.UnknownHostException: user (libchurl.c:694)

Cause

There is no check for syntax validation while creating an external table using PXF.  In the below example, there is a double slash after port number 50070, due to which the error is observed.

CREATE EXTERNAL TABLE test_data2 ( i text )
LOCATION ('pxf://hdm2:50070//user/rjain04/test_data2.txt?Fragmenter=HdfsDataFragmenter&Accessor=TextFileAccessor&Resolver=TextResolver')
FORMAT 'TEXT' (DELIMITER = E'\t')

Solution

Drop the external table and recreate the table with correct syntax having LOCATION keyword with it's argument in single line.

CREATE EXTERNAL TABLE test_data2 ( i text )
LOCATION ('pxf://hdm2:50070/user/rjain04/test_data2.txt?Fragmenter=HdfsDataFragmenter&Accessor=TextFileAccessor&Resolver=TextResolver')
FORMAT 'TEXT' (DELIMITER = E'\t')
