Hi Satish,

You can take a look at which
has a design doc attached. 

To answer your question, the ambari agent ( python based ) running on the node invokes puppet
apply on a generated site.pp ( i.e. puppet is used in standalone mode ). There are plans to
start looking at making it easy to add other components to the currently supported stack.
If you have any particular requirements that you are trying to address, as a start, filing
a jira with more details would help.

if we need to add another component to Hadoop stack and have it installed/configured/managed
with Ambari- what is the procedure to achieve this. Looking for right doc. pointers or any
samples for jump start.
