A jar and a the directory a jar is in are not the same things from the class paths perspective.
 ./* only picks up .jar files in the current directory. $PWD is the same as ./ and does not
pick up any jars in the current directory, instead it looks for .class files and other resources
that are relative to the current working directory. This is pure java and has nothing to do
with Hadoop specifically.

Subject: About LocalResource


  I wrote a yarn application with two LocalResource, AppMaster.jar and log4j.properties in

 After several tries, I found I must set both $PWD and ./* in my CLASSPATH  environment  params
to load mainclass and log4j.properties. Since yarn has created symlinks about two LocalResource,
in my mind only './*' will be ok.  Why did this happen?

btw, I picked a part of launch_container script to figure out why here.

export PWD="/var/data/hadoop/hadoop-2.0.3-alpha/nm/usercache/guojie/appcache/application_1364315005746_0011/
ln -sf "/var/data/hadoop/hadoop-2.0.3-alpha/nm/usercache/guojie/appcache/application_1364315005746_0011/filecache/-1997165377357121547/log4j.properties"
ln -sf "/var/data/hadoop/hadoop-2.0.3-alpha/nm/usercache/guojie/appcache/application_1364315005746_0011/filecache/-4433130098352976813/AppMaster.jar"
