Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-2993) Specify which JAVA_HOME should be set
Date Sat, 12 Apr 2008 00:45:35 GMT
I think the reference of the 'JAVA_HOME environment variable' in the
'Required Software' section should be required -- I think that should
suffice. It seems excessive :)

Thanks,
Edward.

that user should set JAVA_HOME under "1." of "Required Software".  But, it does not specify
where this should be set.  My instinct (as would be the instinct of any un*x user) was to
set this in his/her shell/profie/rcfile.  Please specify that this should be specified in
conf/hadoop-env.sh.  Yes, this is clarified later under "Download", but is easy to miss, especially
since the user will think that he/she had already set JAVA_HOME.
