Subject Re: Ubuntu 12.04 - Which JDK? and some more
Date Sat, 10 Nov 2012 12:44:59 GMT
Hi,

After spending time to research Hadoop and Hbase JDK requirements, here is my advice about
using Ubuntu 12.04: 
 
1) If you plan to use HBase on Hadoop HDFS, do note that HBase will run on Oracle's JDK only,
so do NOT use OpenJDK or other JDKs for the setup. 
2) When installing Ubuntu, should NOT use LVM (Linux Logical Volume Manager) for Hadoop data
disks! (There will be performance issue between the filesystem and the device, LVM is the
default for some Linux package, be careful not to select LVM)

regards

There are some changes between java7 and 6 and you may face issues while running your code,
like using sort with collections. I faced the same thing when using List.sort in my code.
So, it's better to go with sun's java6. If you want to install it you can follow these steps
