Subject [jira] [Commented] (GIRAPH-545) Improve Facebook Hadoop dependency
Date Fri, 01 Mar 2013 18:11:13 GMT


Nitay Joffe commented on GIRAPH-545:

Here's my rough notes:
If we need to update the jar next time I can do it in a script and save the commands.

> The Facebook Hadoop dependency uses a local path (systemPath in maven) which is bad for
many reasons. See e.g. (the part
about system scope). Amongst the problems are:
> - We package the jar ourselves in our lib/ folder
> - Anyone depending on Giraph needs to download jars themselves and put them in right
place, but we don't supply the jars.
> - There is no javadoc or sources jar which comes with most open source maven projects
and is really handy
> So I went ahead and created a package from Facebook's code on Github and published the
jar to maven central. This diff updates our code to use that, which fixes all of the problems
mentioned above.
