Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-4014) DFS upgrade fails on Windows
Date Fri, 05 Sep 2008 10:33:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-4014?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12628606#action_12628606

Steve Loughran commented on HADOOP-4014:

The quoted OS in in a JVM comes from the JRE; different JVMs detect different values, and
tend to lag OS releases. OpenJDK even reports different things from a closed JDK. Which makes
it very hard to do OS family detection reliably. Its probalby only java6+ that detects Vista,
for example. 

The most broadly tested code for this in apache is Ant's OS condition


-lowercases in the US locale the jvm properties
-assumes the presence of "windows" in the OS => windows, assumes further than only a few
limited versions are win9x; the rest is NT-based
-looks for various strings for macos
-guesses that systems with / and : as seperators are unix-like
-looks for various obscure operating systems
-or bails out

I'd recommend taking this code and adapting it; strip out netware and OS/360 support if need
be. This routine is the first one to get bugreps when a new OS or JDK  ships, so is maintained.
