Subject [jira] [Commented] (AMBARI-7201) Common Services
Date Tue, 16 Sep 2014 13:07:34 GMT


Robert Levas commented on AMBARI-7201:


Sorry for the delay on this... after discussing a bit with [~jspeidel], it seems like the
2 levels of version numbers may be overkill.  I was trying to come up with a use case for
multiple versions of a service declaration for a particular service version and failed to
do so.  Could you help with that.  For example, why would we have 


Maybe we only really need to worry about one version of each


My inclination is to be the most flexible, but maybe I was trying to be too flexible.  Thoughts?

> *Problem*
> The current implementation of the Ambari stack does not allow for a common set of services
to be defined and reused in vendor-specific stack definitions. Therefore in order for the
same service to be made available to different stacks, it’s definition must be copied or
inherited from stack to stack.  
> *Solution*
> There needs to be a repository of services that exist outside the scope of any vendor-specific
stack, but are accessible to vendor-specific stacks via service inheritance. This set of services
should be known as common services and are to be maintained by the community to ensure that
changes do not break vendor-specific services that inherit from them.
