Subject [jira] [Updated] (MAPREDUCE-1700) User supplied dependencies may conflict with MapReduce system JARs
Date Thu, 06 Sep 2012 15:47:09 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1700?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Tom White updated MAPREDUCE-1700:
---------------------------------

    Attachment: MAPREDUCE-1700-ccl.patch

Prompted by this discussion I had a look at using a classloader approach similar to how servlet
containers are implemented. The servlet spec says that classes in the WEB-INF/classes directory
and JARs in the WEB-INF/lib directory are loaded in preference to system classes. I found
this page about classloading in Jetty useful: http://docs.codehaus.org/display/JETTY/Classloading.

The attached patch does a similar thing for the Hadoop task classpath by using a custom classloader
for classes instantiated by reflection in MapTask. The unit test from the previous patch passes
with this implementation. I think this is worth exploring further.

> 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.
