Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-2838) Add HADOOP_LIBRARY_PATH config setting so Hadoop will include external directories for jni
Date Mon, 20 Oct 2008 22:46:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2838?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12641195#action_12641195
] 

Christian Kunz commented on HADOOP-2838:
----------------------------------------

I see a use case for this proposal.

HADOOP-2867 allows to load shared libraries via symbolic links pointing to localized cache
files.
This would apply to libhdfs library

On the other hand, libhdfs is part of the Hadoop release and is likely locally available on
all the nodes. By being able to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to some static location, the need to use
DistributedCache for dynamically loading libhdfs could be avoided.

> Currently there is no way to configure Hadoop to use external JNI directories. I propose
we add a new variable like HADOOP_CLASS_PATH that is added to the JAVA_LIBRARY_PATH before
the process is run.
