Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAPREDUCE-1700) User supplied dependencies may conflict with MapReduce system JARs
Date Thu, 06 Sep 2012 05:22:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1700?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13449430#comment-13449430

Luke Lu commented on MAPREDUCE-1700:
------------------------------------

bq. Without a user doing classloader gymnasitics and fancy packaging themselves, there is
not always a way.

That's an interesting way to say that except for some ways that would always work, there is
not always a way. Using the standard task API to bootstrap an OSGi container is reasonably
straight forward :)

bq. A user cannot simply package a jar up and ask hadoop to execute it and expose to the user's
execution environment only the public Hadoop API.

I do agree that there is a usability issue for certain (and arguably less common) use cases,
where a user wants to use dependencies that conflict with client framework. However the proposed
OSGi approach makes the usability worse for common cases: You'll always need OSGi bundles,
which is a form of "fancy packaging", to run your jobs.

A more reasonable (and less heavy) solution would not require users to make any change (including
adding metadata to their jars) to their existing code.

> If user code has a dependency on a version of a JAR that is different to the one that
happens to be used by Hadoop, then it may not work correctly. This happened with user code
using a different version of Avro, as reported [here|https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-493?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12852081#action_12852081].
> The problem is analogous to the one that application servers have with WAR loading. Using
a specialized classloader in the Child JVM is probably the way to solve this.
