Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8887) Use a Maven plugin to build the native code using CMake
Date Wed, 13 Jan 2016 01:59:40 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8887?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15095458#comment-15095458

Kai Zheng commented on HADOOP-8887:
-----------------------------------

This sounds so good to have! I felt the same pain and necessity during working on ISA-L integration,
having been wondering if it's possible to unify the native building process for both Linux
and Windows, provide much easier setup for adding new unit tests until finding this. Would
very happily lend a hand in this aspect if necessary. Thanks!

> Currently, we build the native code using ant-build invocations.  Although this works,
it has some limitations:
> * compiler warning messages are hidden, which can cause people to check in code with
warnings unintentionally
> * there is no framework for running native unit tests; instead, we use ad-hoc constructs
involving shell scripts
> * the antrun code is very platform specific
> * there is no way to run a specific native unit test
> * it's more or less impossible for scripts like test-patch.sh to separate a native test
failing from the build itself failing (no files are created) or to enumerate which native
tests failed.
> Using a native Maven plugin would overcome these limitations.
