Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-8887) Use a Maven plugin to build the native code using CMake
Date Fri, 05 Oct 2012 18:38:04 GMT
Colin Patrick McCabe created HADOOP-8887:

             Summary: Use a Maven plugin to build the native code using CMake
                 Key: HADOOP-8887
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8887
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: build
    Affects Versions: 2.0.3-alpha
            Reporter: Colin Patrick McCabe
            Assignee: Colin Patrick McCabe
            Priority: Minor

Currently, we build the native code using ant-build invocations.  Although this works, it
has some limitations:

* compiler warning messages are hidden, which can cause people to check in code with warnings
* there is no framework for running native unit tests; instead, we use ad-hoc constructs involving
shell scripts
* the antrun code is very platform specific
* there is no way to run a specific native unit test
* it's more or less impossible for scripts like test-patch.sh to separate a native test failing
from the build itself failing (no files are created) or to enumerate which native tests failed.

Using a native Maven plugin would overcome these limitations.
