change hdfs jmxget to return an empty string instead of null when an attribute value is not available.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Key: HDFS-1738
URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1738
Project: Hadoop HDFS
Issue Type: Bug
Components: tools
Reporter: Tanping Wang
Assignee: Tanping Wang
Priority: Minor


Currently the tool, hdfs jmx returns null in case of an attribute value is not available. A null pointer exception is thrown and the value of the rest attributes are not printed. It makes more sense to return an empty string and continue to print out the values for the rest attributes.

Example of current behavior
$ hdfs jmxget -server gsbl90629.blue.ygrid.yahoo.com -port 8004 -service NameNode,name=NameNodeActivity
jmx name: name=NameNodeActivity,service=NameNode
tag.ProcessName=NameNode
java.lang.NullPointerException
at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.tools.JMXGet.printAllValues(JMXGet.java:106)
at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.tools.JMXGet.main(JMXGet.java:329)
