Subject Re: Maven and Mini MR Cluster
Date Thu, 04 Feb 2010 15:35:21 GMT
Ya with the hadoop_home stuff i was grasping at straws. My mini MR Cluster has a valid classpath
i assume, since my entire test runs (thru 3 mapreduce jobs via the localrunner) before it
gets to the mini MR cluster portion. Is it possible to print out the classpath thru the JVMManager
or anything else like that for debugging purposes?

run the same test w/o creating the mini cluster, well.. it works fine. My HADOOP_HOME is set
to the same version as my mvn repo, and points to a valid installation of hadoop. When i validate
the classpath thru maven, (dependency:build-classpath), it says that the core libs are on
the classpath as well (sourced from my .m2 repository). I just cant figure out why hadoop's
mini cluster cant find those jars. Running hadoop 0.20.0. Any suggestions?

which is a forked JVM from the one the MiniMRCluster was created in.
