Subject [jira] [Resolved] (MAPREDUCE-4872) MapReduce JVM launch does not use correct working directory on Windows
Date Fri, 14 Nov 2014 22:43:33 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-4872?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Chris Nauroth resolved MAPREDUCE-4872.
--------------------------------------
    Resolution: Won't Fix

I'm going to close this as won't fix.  In practice, this doesn't really cause anything to
break, because even on Windows, the container launch script explicitly sets a value for the
{{PWD}} environment variable.  Even though this environment variable name is more of a Unix-like
convention, there isn't a compelling reason to make a change.

> {{MapReduceChildJVM#getVMCommand}} sets java.io.tmpdir by using environment variable
PWD as the root of the path.  On Windows, %PWD% likely will not be defined.  Instead, we need
to use %CD%.  Any part of the codebase that uses {{Environment#PWD}} is likely to be impacted
by this.
