Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAPREDUCE-3169) Create a new MiniMRCluster equivalent which only provides client APIs cross MR1 and MR2
Date Fri, 28 Oct 2011 19:07:32 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-3169?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13138654#comment-13138654

Alejandro Abdelnur commented on MAPREDUCE-3169:

How about the following approach?

* Don't do anything pre 0.23

* For 0.23/trunk:
** Have new MiniMRClientCluster (h-mr-p/h-mr-c/h-mr-c-jc)
** Re-implement old MiniMRCluster to be a facade on MiniMRClientCluster keeping only meaningful
methods (h-mr-p/h-mr-regression-test)
** Use MiniMRCluster for all (70 odd) testcases that use it for regression purposes (the current
'ant tests'). For the rest (20 odd) testcases that use MR1 specific stuff, we just delete
those tests.
** MiniMRCluster would in h-mr-p/h-mr-regression-test module, other projects (pig, hive, oozie,
etc) would use it from there. It would not be avail in MR2 modules (to force all new stuff
to use the new MiniMRClientCluster)

> Many dependent projects like HBase, Hive, Pig, etc, depend on MiniMRCluster for writing
tests. Many users do as well. MiniMRCluster, however, exposes MR implementation details like
the existence of TaskTrackers, JobTrackers, etc, since it was used by MR1 for testing the
server implementations as well.
> This JIRA is to create a new interface which could be implemented either by MR1 or MR2
that exposes only the client-side portions of the MR framework. Ideally it would be "recompile-compatible"
with MiniMRCluster for most applications, and the MR1 implementation could be backported to
20x branch. Thus, dependent projects like HBase could migrate to this implementation and test
against both MR1 and MR2. We can also use this to port over the current functional tests that
use only the client-side features of MiniMRCluster.
