Subject [jira] Commented: (MAPREDUCE-2265) task-controller and jsvc should install into sbin/<platform>/ directory
Date Fri, 14 Jan 2011 21:41:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-2265?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12981936#action_12981936

Owen O'Malley commented on MAPREDUCE-2265:
------------------------------------------

But it is *only* useful for universal binary tarballs. For RPM's for instance, you can just
put the right one in to place and remove a unnecessary level of indirection.

For the fat binary tarballs, how about if it looks like:

libexec/arch/$ARCH/*
libexec/task-controller is a symlink to one of the executables that are in the arch folder?

> Currently the task-controller and jsvc "live" in the bin/ directory regardless of build
platform. This is incorrect since these components are native compiled code and thus are built
for a particular architecture. So, when we ship a build of 22, we will want to ship both 32-bit
and 64-bit artifacts so users can use these components without rebuilding on their own.
> Additionally, it doesn't make sense for them to be in bin/ since they're not user-facing
in any way (i.e a user would never directly invoke them). So I would propose putting them
in an sbin directory.
> The final proposed path is $HADOOP_HOME/sbin/<platform>/{jsvc,task-controller}
> Note this is not an incompatible change since these components were not present in any
prior apache release.
