Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-3135) Build a war file for HttpFS instead of packaging the server (tomcat) along with the application.
Date Wed, 22 Apr 2015 18:54:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-3135?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14507663#comment-14507663

Ravi Prakash commented on HDFS-3135:
------------------------------------

I just read http://www.vitavonni.de/blog/201503/2015031201-the-sad-state-of-sysadmin-in-the-age-of-containers.html
. Among other things, it reminded me of this issue also. We don't use https (even though the
URL works with it) for downloading. I would be inclined to simply copy the tomcat tarball
into the git repo. https://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/HowToRelease doesn't call out any special
precautions for pulling in these dependencies either.
I wish I understood Maven dependency management more and the security implications. Any ideas,
pointers and thoughts would be welcome.

> 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.
