Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-3465) Hbase should use a HADOOP_HOME environment variable if available.
Date Thu, 21 Jul 2011 15:25:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-3465?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13069025#comment-13069025
] 

stack commented on HBASE-3465:
------------------------------

On 1., we use the mini test tools, minidfs, etc., but if the HADOOP_HOME is for runtime only,
we should be able to get away with not needing hadoop-test*.jar.

On 2., my bad.

This patch should be good to go then AA?

> I have been burned a few times lately while developing code by having the make sure that
the hadoop jar in hbase/lib is exactly correct.  In my own deployment, there are actually
3 jars and a native library to keep in sync that hbase shouldn't have to know about explicitly.
 A similar problem arises when using stock hbase with CDH3 because of the security patches
changing the wire protocol.
> All of these problems could be avoided by not assuming that the hadoop library is in
the local directory.  Moreover, I think it might be possible to assemble the distribution
such that the compile time hadoop dependency is in a cognate directory to lib and is referenced
using a default value for HADOOP_HOME.
> Does anybody have any violent antipathies to such a change?
