Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9450) HADOOP_USER_CLASSPATH_FIRST is not honored; CLASSPATH is PREpended instead of APpended
Date Thu, 04 Apr 2013 00:07:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9450?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13621553#comment-13621553

Chris Nauroth commented on HADOOP-9450:

Hi, Mitch.  HADOOP_USER_CLASSPATH_FIRST has been working fine for me.  What version of the
code are you running?  I checked the trunk and branch-1 versions of this code, and both seem
to be correct.  There are 3 snippets that are relevant.  First, CLASSPATH is initialized to

# CLASSPATH initially contains $HADOOP_CONF_DIR

Second, there is a check if HADOOP_USER_CLASSPATH_FIRST and HADOOP_CLASSPATH are defined.
 If defined, then the next thing becomes HADOOP_CLASSPATH.  Note that HADOOP_CONF_DIR would
still be first, but this should be fine, because jars/classes don't really go in the conf

if [ "$HADOOP_USER_CLASSPATH_FIRST" != "" ] && [ "$HADOOP_CLASSPATH" != "" ] ; then

After this, there is logic for adding the various Hadoop classpath entries from the build.
 Finally, there is a second check of HADOOP_USER_CLASSPATH_FIRST and HADOOP_CLASSPATH:

# add user-specified CLASSPATH last
if [ "$HADOOP_USER_CLASSPATH_FIRST" = "" ] && [ "$HADOOP_CLASSPATH" != "" ]; then

This is the opposite of the first check: if HADOOP_USER_CLASSPATH_FIRST and HADOOP_CLASSPATH
are undefined, then now we need to add them as the last entries.

I think this all works correctly, but were you looking at a different version of the code?

> On line 133 of the hadoop shell wrapper, CLASSPATH is set as:
> Notice that the built-up CLASSPATH, along with all the libs and unwanted JARS are pre-pended
BEFORE the user's HADOOP_CLASSPATH.  Therefore there is no way to put your own JARs in front
of those that the hadoop wrapper script sets.
> We propose a patch that reverses this order.  Failing that, we would like to add a command
line option to override this behavior and enable a user's JARs to be found before the wrong
ones in the Hadoop library paths.
> We always welcome your opinions.
