Subject Re: Compatibility Yarn 2.4 with HDFS 2.0
Date Sun, 08 Jun 2014 13:01:54 GMT
the 2.0.5 release was always considered alpha -there were some explicitly
added mandatory fields to HDFS, lots of java level changes too. One of the
reasons for that was to have a stable API from 2.2+, which is why 2.2
clients can work with 2.3 and 2.4 clusters today -and later versions of
hadoop 2.x will also make that wire compatibility a goal

the compatibility policy is discussed here

Afraid so.

change your build to use the new versions. As gordon warns, protobuf JAR
versions is a troublespot -if you are creating your own protobuf-based IPC
protocols, updating takes some work. Otherwise -that is, for simpler Hadoop
clients- updating dependencies will take care of most things, handling java
API changes the other.
