Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-13339) Update default Hadoop version to 2.6.0
Date Thu, 26 Mar 2015 17:23:53 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-13339?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14382268#comment-14382268

Elliott Clark commented on HBASE-13339:

I really don't see how forcing users to do this is any better than doing it ourselves. 2.6.0
is better in just about every way. Hence I can't see recommending 2.5 to anyone ever. Yes
I'd love to live in a world where Hadoop and it's dependencies are hidden from our users.
However I don't think that stagnating our version of hadoop and making some features ( tiered
storage, and AES over the wire ) un-usable is a solution. It's just playing ostrich and ignoring
that things are moving forward.

I just went through and from eyeballing all that changes is that some dependencies are added.
I don't see the large harm on adding some transitive dependencies ( that ship has already
sailed ).

> Current default Hadoop version is getting a little long in the tooth. We should update
to the latest version. The latest version is backwards compatible with 2.5.1's dfs and mr
so this should be painless.
