Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-6605) Add JAVA_HOME detection to hadoop-config
Date Wed, 18 May 2011 21:16:54 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6605?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13035679#comment-13035679

Daryn Sharp commented on HADOOP-6605:
-------------------------------------

bq. java_home is not a stable interface. It cannot be trusted to last, especially given the
question marks that hang over Java on OS X.

This is not true. Apple engineers tell devs on their java-dev list to use java_home.  The
following technote says to use java_home.  The utility was added in part so future non-system
provided jvms don't monkey with system controlled directories.

> The commands that source hadoop-config.sh currently bail with an error if JAVA_HOME is
not set. Let's detect JAVA_HOME (from a list of locations on various OS types) if JAVA_HOME
is not already set by hadoop-env.sh or the environment. This way users don't have to manually
configure it.
