Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-232) jar files sent to task tracker should override existing jar
Date Fri, 19 May 2006 20:27:31 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-232?page=comments#action_12412585 ] 

Yoram Arnon commented on HADOOP-232:

debugging the hadoop distcp command required it.
the command is executed by the dfs client, which is in this case a map task.
the class is part of the hadoop release however, so it already resided on the tasktracker's
nodes. We wanted to actually override it using a newly sent jar, without upgrading and restarting
the map-reduce cluster.
we saw that as a general enough case to warrant a change to the task tracker.

I guess that an alternate solution would be to unbundle the 'external' programs from the main
jar file.

> this results in the original jar getting executed, although a new one was sent  - not
the intent.
