Subject [jira] [Created] (MAPREDUCE-3584) streaming.jar -file packaging forgets timestamps
Date Tue, 20 Dec 2011 17:34:30 GMT
streaming.jar -file packaging forgets timestamps
------------------------------------------------

                 Key: MAPREDUCE-3584
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-3584
             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 0.20.2
            Reporter: Dieter Plaetinck


When invoking "hadoop jar /usr/local/hadoop/contrib/streaming/hadoop-0.20.2-streaming.jar
-file <files>",
hadoop will package the files <files>, but it will forget about their timestamps.
After the files are unpacked in <tmp_dir>/mapred/local/taskTracker/jobcache/job_$job/jars,
all files will have the timestamps of when the files were unpacked.
The problem is that this way meaningful information is lost.
For example in my case i ship some files along with my job, and I need to compare the age
(mtime) of 2 files and rebuild one of them if it's too old,
but because of this hadoop behavior, my logic breaks.
