Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLINK-1406) Windows compatibility
Date Thu, 15 Jan 2015 19:33:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-1406?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14279178#comment-14279178

Fabian Hueske commented on FLINK-1406:

The current Windows support focusses on users who want to implement Flink programs on Windows.

The {{./bin/start-local.bat}} script starts a local Flink instance (JobManager and single
TaskManager share a JVM) and {{./bin/flink.bat}} is a command line client. Besides that, users
can always implement and test programs in their IDE.

+1 for extending the documentation to tell users that they can develop Flink programs on Windows!

>             Project: Flink
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>            Reporter: Max Michels
>            Priority: Minor
> The documentation [1] states: "Flink runs on all UNIX-like environments: Linux, Mac OS
X, Cygwin. The only requirement is to have a working Java 6.x (or higher) installation."
> I just found out Flink runs also natively on Windows. Do we want to support Windows?
If so, we should update the documentation. Clearly, we don't support it at the moment for
development. At multiple places, the tests contain references to "/tmp" or "/dev/random/"
which are not Windows compatible.
> Probably it's enough to update the documentation stating that Flink runs on Windows but
cannot be build or developed on Windows without Cygwin.
