Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-3338) Update example classpath configuration
Date Mon, 17 Nov 2014 16:24:34 GMT


Josh Elser commented on ACCUMULO-3338:

bq. We do not include vendor specific paths for any other distribution and I don't think we
should start now.

We already have made the decision, and have code included in Apache Accumulo, that vendor
specific changes are acceptable if someone takes the time to make a vendor specific change.
Note: o.a.a.s.m.recovery.MapRLogCloser. I don't see a reason why configuration files should
be treated differently than source code.

bq. I've run into many many cases where users treat the example configurations as appropriate
for production use

That may be the case, but I don't believe that's actually feasible to accomplish. I don't
know how it's possible to provide an out of the box configuration file or configuration script
which is actually secure. Additionally, this change did not initially introduce this, but
continued the practice of having these example configurations work with HDP's layout ({{/usr/lib/hadoop-hdfs}},
and others are HDP specific).

jars which make them more likely to generally work.
