Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-7368) Mechanism for providing version info of hadoop jars
Date Fri, 10 Jun 2011 17:17:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7368?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13047301#comment-13047301

Alejandro Abdelnur commented on HADOOP-7368:

IMO, the current mechanism brings obscurity/complexity to the build process.

And if you open a JAR, replace a file, and reJAR, then you know you are doing something funny.
(And you could do that with the annotation class as well)

> In 0.20.x, only one jar (hadoop-core-*.jar) really matters. The o.a.h.util.VersionInfo
combined with saveVersion.sh script (generating a package level annotation) served us well.
For 0.23+, due to the project split and modularization of mapreduce (currently in MR-279),
a lot more essential hadoop jars are created. The potential of mixing up the jars is significantly
increased as well. We need a simple way to list the version info (version, branch, source
checksum etc.) for all the jars involved. This is essential for QE and tracking down various
> I propose that we use a VersionProvider interface (similar to the current VersionInfo
util class) and ServiceLoader to enumerate the version providers in the jars.
