Subject [Hadoop Wiki] Update of "HadoopJavaVersions" by VinodKumarVavilapalli
Date Thu, 22 Sep 2011 05:44:18 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Hadoop Wiki" for change notification.

The "HadoopJavaVersions" page has been changed by VinodKumarVavilapalli:

OpenJDK6 doesn't work with hadoop 0.23 and beyond, in mapreduce project.

  OpenJDK is handy to have on a development system as it has more source for you to step into
when debugging something. OpenJDK and Sun JDK mainly differ in (native?) rendering/AWT/Swing
code, which is not relevant for any MapReduce Jobs that aren't creating images as part of
their work.
+ Note*: OpenJDK6 has some open bugs w.r.t handling of generics (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openjdk-6/+bug/611284,
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openjdk-6/+bug/716959), so OpenJDK cannot be used
to compile hadoop mapreduce code in branch-0.23 and beyond, please use other JDKs.
  == Oracle JRockit ==
  Oracle's JRockit JVM is not the same as the Sun JVM: it has very different heap and memory
management behavior. Hadoop has been used on JRockit, though not at "production" scale.
