Subject [jira] [Created] (FALCON-1301) FALCON - Update documentation in Installation steps.txt
Date Sun, 28 Jun 2015 15:39:04 GMT
Janarthanan created FALCON-1301:

             Summary: FALCON - Update documentation in Installation steps.txt
                 Key: FALCON-1301
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FALCON-1301
             Project: Falcon
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Janarthanan
            Priority: Critical

Below are few suggestions to be included in installation steps:
1. Tree structure for embedded and distributed mode separately. 
2. Difference between embedded and distributed, though we can make it from the names. But
at first sight, I was not able to make any thing out of it. 
3. How to build the falcon ? First I see a command "mvn clean install" 
Again there is one more command with "mvn assembly...." . What's the need for both, I am not
able to make it, since i don't have much background on maven. I just followed the instructions
given there.
4. While opening the GUI, it prompts for user name, can there be a text to either leave it
as blank or default user name being displayed in the text box ? Because it accepts any random
text as user name. Now I am not able to give the user name, even after stopping falcon and
starting again, still it uses the same user name. Not sure how it impacts the issue i posted.
5. When I built using the maven commands, I see two folders created inside the /target folder
as below, is there any difference or what's the purpose of both the folders.
6. Instruction to be given to add falcon directory to the PATH variable. Which should be the
working directory to run the falcon cli commands ? quite few times, I got 'could not load
main class' error. After couple of trails from various folders, I got it right.
7. Details about the three tabs in GUI. But nothing to display in all the three tabs at the
first hit.
8. Should the endpoint for execution have https or http ?
What does rm stands for ? is it resource manager url ? What's the exact value to be provided
for execution endpoint.
