Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-1622) Hadoop should provide a way to allow the user to specify jar file(s) the user job depends on
Date Fri, 20 Jul 2007 21:55:06 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1622?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12514347
] 

Dennis Kubes commented on HADOOP-1622:
--------------------------------------

Just confirm this for me.  Each application (i.e. Injector, Generator, etc.) would be responsible
for dealing with the command line options in their own way, even though they extend ToolBase.
 If I modify JobClient#run(String[]) then that only sets additional jars for the JobClient.
 I could add the command line parsing to ToolBase#processGeneralOptions, and then it affects
any child of ToolBase.  Just wondering where to put the command line parsing and how it would
affect applications like Injector.

> More likely than not, a user's job may depend on multiple jars.
> Right now, when submitting a job through bin/hadoop, there is no way for the user to
specify that. 
> A walk around for that is to re-package all the dependent jars into a new jar or put
the dependent jar files in the lib dir of the new jar.
> This walk around causes unnecessary inconvenience to the user. Furthermore, if the user
does not own the main function 
> (like the case when the user uses Aggregate, or datajoin, streaming), the user has to
re-package those system jar files too.
> It is much desired that hadoop provides a clean and simple way for the user to specify
a list of dependent jar files at the time 
> of job submission. Someting like:
> bin/hadoop .... --depending_jars j1.jar:j2.jar
