Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-3135) Build a war file for HttpFS instead of packaging the server (tomcat) along with the application.
Date Fri, 31 Aug 2012 03:53:09 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-3135?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13445608#comment-13445608

Alejandro Abdelnur commented on HDFS-3135:

Bundling a Tomcat Server with HttpFS is just a convenience to work out of the box from Hadoop
TARBALL, you can grab the WAR file and deployed it any servlet container implementing servlet
2.4 or higher. You'll also have to adapt some of the httpfs scripts system properties settings
for Tomcat. 

On the other hand, if you use BigTop packages, only the WAR file and startup scripts are used,
and a bigtop-tomcat package provides the Tomcat server.

As I've commented in HDFS-3866, you could tweak the location from where the tomcat TARBALL
is being downloaded.

> There are several reason why web applications should not be packaged along with the server
that is expected to serve them. For one not all organisations use vanilla tomcat. There are
other reasons I won't go into.
> I'm filing this bug because some of our builds failed in trying to download the tomcat.tar.gz
file. We then had to manually wget the file and place it in downloads/ to make the build pass.
I suspect the download failed because of an overloaded server (Frankly, I don't really know).
If someone has ideas, please share them.
