Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-8528) Consider using java snappy instead of native
Date Mon, 25 Jun 2012 23:19:43 GMT
Dave Revell created HADOOP-8528:
-----------------------------------

             Summary: Consider using java snappy instead of native
                 Key: HADOOP-8528
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8528
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Dave Revell
            Priority: Minor


Using native libs for snappy has some disadvantages:
 - Requires libhadoop and libsnappy to be installed on servers, test machines, and any server
running a minicluster with a SNAPPY CF
 - Requires configuration of java.library.path
 - Complicates the POM

A pure java implementation of snappy is available, ASL2 licensed: http://code.google.com/p/snappy-java/
. Benchmarks versus native snappy are available: https://github.com/ning/jvm-compressor-benchmark/wiki
