----------------------------------

             Summary: Make berkelyDB backed Atlas available without external download
                 Key: ATLAS-2084
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ATLAS-2084
             Project: Atlas
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Nigel Jones


In https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ATLAS-2012 I proposed providing a dockerized version
of Atlas to aid people getting up to speed with the technology. During the review it was noted
that we had used Hbase for storage rather than the more lightweight, simpler, BerkelyDB. My
concern had been around licensing.

Today when we build Atlas following the instructions at http://atlas.apache.org/InstallationSteps.html
the user is directed to download the berkeleyDB jar from oracle. In ATLAS-2012 David/Graham
pointed out that this DB appears to be Apache 2.0 licensed, which means we could incorporate
it into our build legitimately.

Given the necessity to get licensing correct I've opened up this new JIRA to focus on that
change. We would need to
 * Validate we are indeed correct about the license
 * Add the DB file into the build
 * Update the web instructions
 * And optionally as per the original JIRA, consider making B-DB the default for our docker
image (most lightweight).

Please add your thoughts. I'm happy to get and do this change .
