Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9082) Select and document a platform-independent scripting language for use in Hadoop environment
Date Fri, 30 Nov 2012 16:37:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9082?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13507430#comment-13507430
] 

Doug Cutting commented on HADOOP-9082:
--------------------------------------

I agree with Allen.  We should minimize scripting.  I fear that Python would encourage more
scripting when what we need is less.  Scripts should be limited to things that cannot be done
in Java.  Parallel versions (bash & bat) of a few simple scripts may be a necessary evil
if Cygwin is unacceptable.
