Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6417) Alternative Java Distributions in the Hadoop Documention
Date Mon, 07 Dec 2009 22:30:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6417?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12787173#action_12787173

Stephen Watt commented on HADOOP-6417:

In a similar fashion to the existing Hadoop distributions Wiki page, I propose that we create
a new "Java Distributions for Hadoop" Wiki page that describes and links to the available
Java distributions. This page would initially point to a few distributions, and the list would
be updated by user-feedback. Additionally, in each place on the Hadoop web site, Wiki and
Download pages where a JRE/JVM download is mentioned, it would link back to the consolidated
"Java Distributions for Hadoop" Wiki page.

>             Project: Hadoop Common
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: documentation
>    Affects Versions: 0.20.1
>            Reporter: Stephen Watt
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 0.20.2, 0.21.0, 0.22.0
> The documentation on the Hadoop Site, Wiki and Download pages specify to use the Sun
distribution of Java. While many people use and test with Sun Java, it is not always the appropriate
choice, most notably when there is not a version available for the target OS. To help users
In such situations we should provide them with information about the available alternatives.
