Re: core-site.xml file is being ignored by new Configuration()
imo, as long as the javadoc is clear enough, any behavior is ok.
What's written in current version is:
name - resource to be added, the classpath is examined for a file with that

So nothing in this javadoc lets you believe that the file exists or will be
loaded. Also you could make sure your file is in the classpath (which is
the case for me).
