Date Mon, 23 May 2011 23:17:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-2485?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13038312#comment-13038312

Tom Melendez commented on MAPREDUCE-2485:

OK, so false alarm, it does work if I specify mapred.child.env.  I did so like this in my
config file and I'm good:


I previously had quotes around classpath var and that barfed.

>            Reporter: Tom Melendez
> We're using pipes, and using libhdfs inside our mapper and reducer code.  We've determined
that we need to execute a putenv call in order for libhdfs to actually have access to the
CLASSPATH.  Ideally, it should just use the CLASSPATH we set when the job was executed.
