Subject Re: [DISCUSS] About the details of JDK-8 support
Date Tue, 06 Oct 2015 05:40:31 GMT

Thank you for sharing information about JDK support discussion. I'd like to share what I know

In terms of runtime level support, we've tried JDK8 with HDP2.3. Although of course there
may be several diffs between HDP and upstream(trunk, branch-2), it is generally working well.
We are running hadoop, mapreduce, yarn, hdfs, hive(HS2, command line). So I also think runtime
level support of JDK8 is generally completed. 
And new features such as Hive LLAP or HDFS erasure coding also work well currently from the
viewpoint of runtime environment.
