Subject Re: Unmanaged AMs
Date Sat, 23 Nov 2013 19:17:23 GMT
Hello Kishore, 

An unmanaged AM has no relation to the language being used. An unmanaged AM is an AM that
is launched outside of the YARN cluster i.e. manually launched elsewhere and not by the RM
( using the application submission context provided by a client). It was built to be a dev-tool
for application developers to be able to test their AMs ( attach debuggers, etc ) and is not
meant to be something that is used in production.

As for other languages, all interactions with the YARN components is via protobuf-based RPC
and you could use the appropriate language binding for protobuf. Take a look at https://github.com/hortonworks/gohadoop
- this has code for a YARN app written in Go. There is still some work left to get this to
work seamlessly for all language types but the go code should point you in the right direction.

to be connect to RM and how would I be able to request for containers? I mean what is the
interface doing these things? Is there a sample code/example somewhere to get an idea about
how to do it?
