Subject [jira] [Commented] (BIGTOP-25) Standardize JAVA_HOME detection
Date Tue, 18 Oct 2011 00:05:10 GMT

Roman Shaposhnik commented on BIGTOP-25:
----------------------------------------

Solving this in its full glory is very important but unlikely for 0.2.0. Thus I'm looking
for a Bigtop-level solution 
to unblock our package installation (currently all sorts of things fail because we simply
can't do anything without
JAVA_HOME being set).

Now, as for Bigtop here's what I would like to propose: we take the attached code and put
it into the post-install 
phase of our packages. This code will either find Java and update and explicit setting of
JAVA_HOME in an 
appropriate /etc/default/foo file or it will issue a warning during package installation telling
user to do it.

Thoughts?

> The Hadoop packages go through some effort (see /usr/lib/hadoop-0.20/bin/hadoop-config.sh)
to guess at a good JVM to use if JAVA_HOME isn't set. For example, if both OpenJDK and Oracle
JDK are installed, hadoop-config.sh 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.
