Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-567) The build script should record the Hadoop version into the build
Date Mon, 02 Oct 2006 19:01:21 GMT

Doug Cutting commented on HADOOP-567:

This is very cool!  +1

A few naming nits.  The script name should end with '.sh'.  And the field names in the generated
class are 'static final' and hence their names should be all caps.  It would also be good
to get some javadoc in that class.  And instead of BuildStamp, we might just call this Version
or HadoopVersion, no?

Finally, I'm not sure why util.VersionInfo is needed.  Under what situations is this better
than simply referencing the constants in the generated class?

Lucene does something related with:


The version is built into the jar manifest in the jar-core target of:


Then it's accessed with:


This does not have the subversion revision, which would be really nice.  Also, in addition
to the revision, it would be good to have the repository URL.  Then one could always recreate
the sources.

Do you think there'd be much of an advantage to use Java's Package stuff for this?
