Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8528) Add pure java snappy as an option
Date Wed, 27 Jun 2012 18:00:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8528?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13402413#comment-13402413

Alejandro Abdelnur commented on HADOOP-8528:

The Snappy codec should fallback to the Java snappy version if the the native bindings are
not avail. Is the snappy-java JAR avail in maven repos? We'll need that to be able to pull
it in.

>                 Key: HADOOP-8528
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8528
>             Project: Hadoop Common
>          Issue Type: Wish
>            Reporter: Dave Revell
>            Priority: Minor
> Using native libs for snappy has some disadvantages:
>  - Requires libhadoop and libsnappy to be installed on servers, test machines, and any
server running a minicluster with a SNAPPY CF
>  - Requires configuration of java.library.path
>  - Complicates the POM
> A pure java implementation of snappy is available, ASL2 licensed:  https://github.com/dain/snappy
