Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAPREDUCE-4374) Fix child task environment variable config and add support for Windows

Didn't understand this part, the existing syntax is "mapred.child.env=MY_PATH=/tmp", is that
how you set vars on Windows?

Oh, sorry for the confusing. By 'existing', I mean the existing setting for Hadoop on Linux.
Because one possible solution is to use the Linux variable setting syntax for Hadoop on Windows.
Hope this clarifies your question.

> In HADOOP-2838, a new feature was introduced to set environment variables via the Hadoop
config 'mapred.child.env' for child tasks. There are some further fixes and improvements around
this feature, e.g. HADOOP-5981 were a bug fix; MAPREDUCE-478 broke the config into 'mapred.map.child.env'
and 'mapred.reduce.child.env'.  However the current implementation is still not complete.
It does not match its documentation or original intend as I believe. Also, by using ‘:’
(colon) and ‘;’ (semicolon) in the configuration syntax, we will have problems using them
on Windows because ‘:’ appears very often in Windows path as in “C:\”, and environment
variables are used very often to hold path names. The Jira is created to fix the problem and
provide support on Windows.
