Subject [jira] [Commented] (BIGTOP-25) Standardize JAVA_HOME detection
Date Mon, 24 Oct 2011 07:28:32 GMT


Bruno Mahé commented on BIGTOP-25:

Thanks a lot!

 * can we use Bigtop as a moniker instead of bigTop or any other kinds of capitalization?
when used in mailing list/http URLs lets use bigtop 
-> Good catch! So I checked the case used for the proposal and the website, and fixed the
strings to Bigtop

  * you sure about /usr/libexec and not something like /usr/lib/bigtop-utils/ ? 
-> See
Although I am quite tempted to put everything in /usr/lib/bigtop-utils for the sake of consistency.
Let's check it in as is and we can update it if it proves to be too troublesome.

* lots of references to HBase in the deb/.../copyright. cut-n-paste errors?
-> Good catch! It's fixed

* rpm/bigtop-utils/SPECS/.gitignore has weird content 
-> It's a copy and paste from the hbase one. I put something else

* would it make more sense to version this package together with Bigtop IOW, BIGTOP_UTILS_BASE_VERSION=BIGTOP_VERSION
-> I like the flexibility of having a separate version number. But on the other hand reusing
the bigtop version make things simpler. So I updated it.

> The Hadoop packages go through some effort (see /usr/lib/hadoop-0.20/bin/
to guess at a good JVM to use if JAVA_HOME isn't set. For example, if both OpenJDK and Oracle
JDK are installed, will choose Oracle every time. Other packages that Bigtop
integrates, don't follow the same practice (ZK, Pig, etc.). It would be nice to have this
common code shared.
