>                 Key: HADOOP-584
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-584
>             Project: Hadoop Common
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: scripts
>    Affects Versions: 0.7.0
>         Environment: Windows
>            Reporter: Konstantin Shvachko
> This is introduced by HADOOP-567.
> The problem is that now I cannot even build hadoop in Eclipse under Windows unless I
run it under Cygwin. 
> This is in a way the same as calling make in build.xml, which was recently fixed HADOOP-537.
> I think we should not introducing more dependencies on Cygwin just in order to show something
in Web UI.
> I also don't remember we claimed that Cygwin or anything else except for Ant is required
for Hadoop builds. 
> Is there another way of solving this?
> build.xml defines "version" property, Ant has "user.name" property. URL is not changing
very often.
> Or may be the web ui should obtain these properties in run-time.
> Or may be the Packaging is a better solution, as you guys discussed.
