Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6605) Improve JAVA_HOME detection and handling in hadoop-config
Date Tue, 02 Mar 2010 02:02:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6605?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12839966#action_12839966

Allen Wittenauer commented on HADOOP-6605:

Also, rather than make this Linux specific, adding /usr/jdk/instances/(version) to the detection
and you'll get Solaris support.  I also notice that the patch already has Mac OS X.

It also just occurred to me that in the past there has been a very big reluctance to put OS
specific fixes/changes in place.  I'm not sure if the community will take such a change here.

> JAVA_HOME can be set in hadoop-env.sh and hadoop-config.sh should respect this. hadoop-config
will source hadoop-env after it determines a config directory. If JAVA_HOME still isn't set,
it will try to guess one from a list of Linux usual locations. If one still isn't set it will
quit with a verbose error message.
