Subject [jira] Created: (HADOOP-1844) Allow hadoop to run in an osgi container
Date Thu, 06 Sep 2007 12:58:32 GMT
Allow hadoop to run in an osgi container

                 Key: HADOOP-1844
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1844
             Project: Hadoop
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: mapred
            Reporter: David Savage
         Attachments: classpath.patch, tasktracker.patch

I have been running some tests getting hadoop to run within an osgi environment (specifically
the Newton framework) and this has uncovered a number of minor bugs when mapred classes are
instantiated from a different start point than their main methods.

I have created a number of patches which I'll attach which solve these issues. It's possible
these patches could be dealt with as separate issues but all are required to resolve the osgi
issue. Happy to split up if easier to manage though.

classpath.patch: this rearranges the classloader hierarchies for Task objects such that a
Task is able to resolve api classes in the case where the api classes are no longer loaded
from the system classloader.

tasklog.patch: this ensures the log files are able to be resolved in the case where the child
process is launched from a different directory to the parent process

taskrunner.patch: this enables the TaskRunner to find a log dir in the case where the parent
jvm is not launched by the hadoop scripts, also allows for a client to specify a substitute
main class (which delegates to the TaskTracker$Child) in this case for purposes of resolving
osgi classpaths but could be more general? Finally adds some extra logging in case where things
go wrong.

tasktracker.patch: allow parent to pass through configuration to child taskrunner (specifically
in this case for purposes of passing classpath and laucher to taskrunner)
