+
+<p>Although the Kudu server is written in C++ for performance and efficiency, developers can write
+client applications in C++, Java, or Python. To make it easier for Java developers to create
+reliable client applications, we’ve added new utilities in Kudu 1.9.0 that allow you to write tests
+using a Kudu cluster without needing to build Kudu yourself, without any knowledge of C++,
+and without any complicated coordination around starting and stopping Kudu clusters for each test.
+This post describes how the new testing utilities work and how you can use them in your application
+tests.</p>
+
+<!--more-->
+
+<h2 id="user-guide">User Guide</h2>
+
+<p>Note: It is possible this blog post could become outdated – for the latest documentation on using
+the JVM testing utilities see the
+<a href="https://kudu.apache.org/docs/developing.html#_jvm_based_integration_testing">Kudu documentation</a>.</p>
+
+<h3 id="requirements">Requirements</h3>
+
+<p>In order to use the new testing utilities, the following requirements must be met:</p>
+
+<ul>
+  <li>OS
+    <ul>
+      <li>macOS El Capitan (10.11) or later</li>
+      <li>CentOS 6.6+, Ubuntu 14.04+, or another recent distribution of Linux
+ <a href="https://kudu.apache.org/docs/installation.html#_prerequisites_and_requirements">supported by Kudu</a></li>
+    </ul>
+  </li>
+  <li>JVM
+    <ul>
+      <li>Java 8+</li>
+      <li>Note: Java 7+ is deprecated, but still supported</li>
+    </ul>
+  </li>
+  <li>Build Tool
+    <ul>
+      <li>Maven 3.1 or later, required to support the
+<a href="https://github.com/trustin/os-maven-plugin">os-maven-plugin</a></li>
+      <li>Gradle 2.1 or later, to support the
+<a href="https://github.com/google/osdetector-gradle-plugin">osdetector-gradle-plugin</a></li>
+      <li>Any other build tool that can download the correct jar from Maven</li>
+    </ul>
+  </li>
+</ul>
+
+<h3 id="build-configuration">Build Configuration</h3>
+
+<p>In order to use the Kudu testing utilities, add two dependencies to your classpath:</p>
+
+<ul>
+  <li>The <code>kudu-test-utils</code> dependency</li>
+  <li>The <code>kudu-binary</code> dependency</li>
+</ul>
+
+<p>The <code>kudu-test-utils</code> dependency has useful utilities for testing applications that use Kudu.
+Primarily, it provides the
+<a href="https://github.com/apache/kudu/blob/master/java/kudu-test-utils/src/main/java/org/apache/kudu/test/KuduTestHarness.java">KuduTestHarness class</a>
+to manage the lifecycle of a Kudu cluster for each test. The <code>KuduTestHarness</code> is a
+<a href="https://junit.org/junit4/javadoc/4.12/org/junit/rules/TestRule.html">JUnit TestRule</a>
+that not only starts and stops a Kudu cluster for each test, but also has methods to manage the
+cluster and get pre-configured <code>KuduClient</code> instances for use while testing.</p>
+
+<p>The <code>kudu-binary</code> dependency contains the native Kudu (server and command-line tool) binaries for
+the specified operating system. In order to download the right artifact for the running operating
+system it is easiest to use a plugin, such as the
+<a href="https://github.com/trustin/os-maven-plugin">os-maven-plugin</a> or
+<a href="https://github.com/google/osdetector-gradle-plugin">osdetector-gradle-plugin</a>, to detect the
+current runtime environment. The <code>KuduTestHarness</code> will automatically find and use the <code>kudu-binary</code>
+jar on the classpath.</p>

+
+<p>Although the Kudu server is written in C++ for performance and efficiency, developers can write
+client applications in C++, Java, or Python. To make it easier for Java developers to create
+reliable client applications, we’ve added new utilities in Kudu 1.9.0 that allow you to write tests
+using a Kudu cluster without needing to build Kudu yourself, without any knowledge of C++,
+and without any complicated coordination around starting and stopping Kudu clusters for each test.
+This post describes how the new testing utilities work and how you can use them in your application
+tests.</p>

-    <p>This summer I got the opportunity to intern with the Apache Kudu team at Cloudera.
-My project was to optimize the Kudu scan path by implementing a technique called

-    
-    <p>This post discusses the Kudu Flume Sink. First, I’ll give some background on why we considered
-using Kudu, what Flume does for us, and how Flume fits with Kudu in our project.</p>
-
-<h2 id="why-kudu">Why Kudu</h2>
-
-<p>Traditionally in the Hadoop ecosystem we’ve dealt with various <em>batch processing</em> technologies such
-as MapReduce and the many libraries and tools built on top of it in various languages (Apache Pig,
-Apache Hive, Apache Oozie and many others). The main problem with this approach is that it needs to
-process the whole data set in batches, again and again, as soon as new data gets added. Things get
-really complicated when a few such tasks need to get chained together, or when the same data set
-needs to be processed in various ways by different jobs, while all compete for the shared cluster
-resources.</p>
-
-<p>The opposite of this approach is <em>stream processing</em>: process the data as soon as it arrives, not
-in batches. Streaming systems such as Spark Streaming, Storm, Kafka Streams, and many others make
-this possible. But writing streaming services is not trivial. The streaming systems are becoming
-more and more capable and support more complex constructs, but they are not yet easy to use. All
-queries and processes need to be carefully planned and implemented.</p>
-
-<p>To summarize, <em>batch processing</em> is:</p>
-
-<ul>
-  <li>file-based</li>
-  <li>a paradigm that processes large chunks of data as a group</li>
-  <li>high latency and high throughput, both for ingest and query</li>
-  <li>typically easy to program, but hard to orchestrate</li>
-  <li>well suited for writing ad-hoc queries, although they are typically high latency</li>
-</ul>
-
-<p>While <em>stream processing</em> is:</p>
-
-<ul>
-  <li>a totally different paradigm, which involves single events and time windows instead of large groups of events</li>
-  <li>still file-based and not a long-term database</li>
-  <li>not batch-oriented, but incremental</li>
-  <li>ultra-fast ingest and ultra-fast query (query results basically pre-calculated)</li>
-  <li>not so easy to program, relatively easy to orchestrate</li>
-  <li>impossible to write ad-hoc queries</li>
-</ul>
-
-<p>And a Kudu-based <em>near real-time</em> approach is:</p>
-
-<ul>
-  <li>flexible and expressive, thanks to SQL support via Apache Impala (incubating)</li>
-  <li>a table-oriented, mutable data store that feels like a traditional relational database</li>
-  <li>very easy to program, you can even pretend it’s good old MySQL</li>
-  <li>low-latency and relatively high throughput, both for ingest and query</li>
-</ul>
-
-<p>At Argyle Data, we’re dealing with complex fraud detection scenarios. We need to ingest massive
-amounts of data, run machine learning algorithms and generate reports. When we created our current
-architecture two years ago we decided to opt for a database as the backbone of our system. That
-database is Apache Accumulo. It’s a key-value based database which runs on top of Hadoop HDFS,
-quite similar to HBase but with some important improvements such as cell level security and ease
-of deployment and management. To enable querying of this data for quite complex reporting and
-analytics, we used Presto, a distributed query engine with a pluggable architecture open-sourced
-by Facebook. We wrote a connector for it to let it run queries against the Accumulo database. This
-architecture has served us well, but there were a few problems:</p>
-
-<ul>
-  <li>we need to ingest even more massive volumes of data in real-time</li>
-  <li>we need to perform complex machine-learning calculations on even larger data-sets</li>
-  <li>we need to support ad-hoc queries, plus long-term data warehouse functionality</li>
-</ul>
-
-<p>So, we’ve started gradually moving the core machine-learning pipeline to a streaming based
-solution. This way we can ingest and process larger data-sets faster in the real-time. But then how
-would we take care of ad-hoc queries and long-term persistence? This is where Kudu comes in. While
-the machine learning pipeline ingests and processes real-time data, we store a copy of the same
-ingested data in Kudu for long-term access and ad-hoc queries. Kudu is our <em>data warehouse</em>. By
-using Kudu and Impala, we can retire our in-house Presto connector and rely on Impala’s
-super-fast query engine.</p>
-
-<p>But how would we make sure data is reliably ingested into the streaming pipeline <em>and</em> the
-Kudu-based data warehouse? This is where Apache Flume comes in.</p>
-
-<h2 id="why-flume">Why Flume</h2>
-
-<p>According to their <a href="http://flume.apache.org/">website</a> “Flume is a distributed, reliable, and
-available service for efficiently collecting, aggregating, and moving large amounts of log data.
-It has a simple and flexible architecture based on streaming data flows. It is robust and fault
-tolerant with tunable reliability mechanisms and many failover and recovery mechanisms.” As you
-can see, nowhere is Hadoop mentioned but Flume is typically used for ingesting data to Hadoop
-clusters.</p>
-
-<p><img src="https://blogs.apache.org/flume/mediaresource/ab0d50f6-a960-42cc-971e-3da38ba3adad" alt="png" /></p>
-
-<p>Flume has an extensible architecture. An instance of Flume, called an <em>agent</em>, can have multiple
-<em>channels</em>, with each having multiple <em>sources</em> and <em>sinks</em> of various types. Sources queue data
-in channels, which in turn write out data to sinks. Such <em>pipelines</em> can be chained together to
-create even more complex ones. There may be more than one agent and agents can be configured to
-support failover and recovery.</p>
-
-<p>Flume comes with a bunch of built-in types of channels, sources and sinks. Memory channel is the
-default (an in-memory queue with no persistence to disk), but other options such as Kafka- and
-File-based channels are also provided. As for the sources, Avro, JMS, Thrift, spooling directory
-source are some of the built-in ones. Flume also ships with many sinks, including sinks for writing
-data to HDFS, HBase, Hive, Kafka, as well as to other Flume agents.</p>
-
-<p>In the rest of this post I’ll go over the Kudu Flume sink and show you how to configure Flume to
-write ingested data to a Kudu table. The sink has been part of the Kudu distribution since the 0.8
-release and the source code can be found <a href="https://github.com/apache/kudu/tree/master/java/kudu-flume-sink">here</a>.</p>
-
-<h2 id="configuring-the-kudu-flume-sink">Configuring the Kudu Flume Sink</h2>
-
-<p>Here is a sample flume configuration file:</p>
-
-<pre><code>agent1.sources  = source1
-agent1.channels = channel1
-agent1.sinks = sink1
-
-agent1.sources.source1.type = exec
-agent1.sources.source1.command = /usr/bin/vmstat 1
-agent1.sources.source1.channels = channel1
-
-agent1.channels.channel1.type = memory
-agent1.channels.channel1.capacity = 10000
-agent1.channels.channel1.transactionCapacity = 1000
-
-agent1.sinks.sink1.type = org.apache.flume.sink.kudu.KuduSink
-agent1.sinks.sink1.masterAddresses = localhost
-agent1.sinks.sink1.tableName = stats
-agent1.sinks.sink1.channel = channel1
-agent1.sinks.sink1.batchSize = 50
-agent1.sinks.sink1.producer = org.apache.kudu.flume.sink.SimpleKuduEventProducer
-</code></pre>
-
-<p>We define a source called <code>source1</code> which simply executes a <code>vmstat</code> command to continuously generate
-virtual memory statistics for the machine and queue events into an in-memory <code>channel1</code> channel,
-which in turn is used for writing these events to a Kudu table called <code>stats</code>. We are using
-<code>org.apache.kudu.flume.sink.SimpleKuduEventProducer</code> as the producer. <code>SimpleKuduEventProducer</code> is
-the built-in and default producer, but it’s implemented as a showcase for how to write Flume
-events into Kudu tables. For any serious functionality we’d have to write a custom producer. We
-need to make this producer and the <code>KuduSink</code> class available to Flume. We can do that by simply
-copying the <code>kudu-flume-sink-&lt;VERSION&gt;.jar</code> jar file from the Kudu distribution to the
-<code>$FLUME_HOME/plugins.d/kudu-sink/lib</code> directory in the Flume installation. The jar file contains
-<code>KuduSink</code> and all of its dependencies (including Kudu java client classes).</p>
-
-<p>At a minimum, the Kudu Flume Sink needs to know where the Kudu masters are
-(<code>agent1.sinks.sink1.masterAddresses = localhost</code>) and which Kudu table should be used for writing
-Flume events to (<code>agent1.sinks.sink1.tableName = stats</code>). The Kudu Flume Sink doesn’t create this
-table, it has to be created before the Kudu Flume Sink is started.</p>
-
-<p>You may also notice the <code>batchSize</code> parameter. Batch size is used for batching up to that many
-Flume events and flushing the entire batch in one shot. Tuning batchSize properly can have a huge
-impact on ingest performance of the Kudu cluster.</p>
-
-<p>Here is a complete list of KuduSink parameters:</p>
-
-<table>
-  <thead>
-    <tr>
-      <th>Parameter Name</th>
-      <th>Default</th>
-      <th>Description</th>
-    </tr>

-  <tbody>
-    <tr>
-      <td>masterAddresses</td>
-      <td>N/A</td>
-      <td>Comma-separated list of “host:port” pairs of the masters (port optional)</td>
-    </tr>
-    <tr>
-      <td>tableName</td>
-      <td>N/A</td>
-      <td>The name of the table in Kudu to write to</td>
-    </tr>
-    <tr>
-      <td>producer</td>
-      <td>org.apache.kudu.flume.sink.SimpleKuduEventProducer</td>
-      <td>The fully qualified class name of the Kudu event producer the sink should use</td>
-    </tr>
-    <tr>
-      <td>batchSize</td>
-      <td>100</td>
-      <td>Maximum number of events the sink should take from the channel per transaction, if available</td>
-    </tr>
-    <tr>
-      <td>timeoutMillis</td>
-      <td>30000</td>
-      <td>Timeout period for Kudu operations, in milliseconds</td>
-    </tr>
-    <tr>
-      <td>ignoreDuplicateRows</td>
-      <td>true</td>
-      <td>Whether to ignore errors indicating that we attempted to insert duplicate rows into Kudu</td>
-    </tr>
-  </tbody>
-</table>
-
-<p>Let’s take a look at the source code for the built-in producer class:</p>
-
-<pre><code class="language-java">public class SimpleKuduEventProducer implements KuduEventProducer {
-  private byte[] payload;
-  private KuduTable table;
-  private String payloadColumn;
-
-  public SimpleKuduEventProducer(){
-  }
-
-  @Override
-  public void configure(Context context) {
-    payloadColumn = context.getString("payloadColumn","payload");
-  }
-
-  @Override
-  public void configure(ComponentConfiguration conf) {
-  }
-
-  @Override
-  public void initialize(Event event, KuduTable table) {
-    this.payload = event.getBody();
-    this.table = table;
-  }
-
-  @Override
-  public List&lt;Operation&gt; getOperations() throws FlumeException {
-    try {
-      Insert insert = table.newInsert();
-      PartialRow row = insert.getRow();
-      row.addBinary(payloadColumn, payload);
-
-      return Collections.singletonList((Operation) insert);
-    } catch (Exception e){
-      throw new FlumeException("Failed to create Kudu Insert object!", e);
-    }
-  }
-
-  @Override
-  public void close() {
-  }
-}
-</code></pre>
-
-<p><code>SimpleKuduEventProducer</code> implements the <code>org.apache.kudu.flume.sink.KuduEventProducer</code> interface,
-which itself looks like this:</p>
-
-<pre><code class="language-java">public interface KuduEventProducer extends Configurable, ConfigurableComponent {
-  /**
-   * Initialize the event producer.
-   * @param event to be written to Kudu
-   * @param table the KuduTable object used for creating Kudu Operation objects
-   */
-  void initialize(Event event, KuduTable table);
-
-  /**
-   * Get the operations that should be written out to Kudu as a result of this
-   * event. This list is written to Kudu using the Kudu client API.
-   * @return List of {@link org.kududb.client.Operation} which
-   * are written as such to Kudu
-   */
-  List&lt;Operation&gt; getOperations();
-
-  /*
-   * Clean up any state. This will be called when the sink is being stopped.
-   */
-  void close();
-}
-</code></pre>
-
-<p><code>public void configure(Context context)</code> is called when an instance of our producer is instantiated
-by the KuduSink. SimpleKuduEventProducer’s implementation looks for a producer parameter named
-<code>payloadColumn</code> and uses its value (“payload” if not overridden in Flume configuration file) as the
-column which will hold the value of the Flume event payload. If you recall from above, we had
-configured the KuduSink to listen for events generated from the <code>vmstat</code> command. Each output row
-from that command will be stored as a new row containing a <code>payload</code> column in the <code>stats</code> table.
-<code>SimpleKuduEventProducer</code> does not have any configuration parameters, but if it had any we would
-define them by prefixing it with <code>producer.</code> (<code>agent1.sinks.sink1.producer.parameter1</code> for
-example).</p>
-
-<p>The main producer logic resides in the <code>public List&lt;Operation&gt; getOperations()</code> method. In
-SimpleKuduEventProducer’s implementation we simply insert the binary body of the Flume event into
-the Kudu table. Here we call Kudu’s <code>newInsert()</code> to initiate an insert, but could have used
-<code>Upsert</code> if updating an existing row was also an option, in fact there’s another producer
-implementation available for doing just that: <code>SimpleKeyedKuduEventProducer</code>. Most probably you
-will need to write your own custom producer in the real world, but you can base your implementation
-on the built-in ones.</p>
-
-<p>In the future, we plan to add more flexible event producer implementations so that creation of a
-custom event producer is not required to write data to Kudu. See
-<a href="https://gerrit.cloudera.org/#/c/4034/">here</a> for a work-in-progress generic event producer for
-Avro-encoded Events.</p>
-
-<h2 id="conclusion">Conclusion</h2>
-
-<p>Kudu is a scalable data store which lets us ingest insane amounts of data per second. Apache Flume
-helps us aggregate data from various sources, and the Kudu Flume Sink lets us easily store
-the aggregated Flume events into Kudu. Together they enable us to create a data warehouse out of
-disparate sources.</p>

+</code></pre>
+
+<p>We define a source called <code>source1</code> which simply executes a <code>vmstat</code> command to continuously generate
+virtual memory statistics for the machine and queue events into an in-memory <code>channel1</code> channel,
+which in turn is used for writing these events to a Kudu table called <code>stats</code>. We are using
+<code>org.apache.kudu.flume.sink.SimpleKuduEventProducer</code> as the producer. <code>SimpleKuduEventProducer</code> is
+the built-in and default producer, but it’s implemented as a showcase for how to write Flume
+events into Kudu tables. For any serious functionality we’d have to write a custom producer. We
+need to make this producer and the <code>KuduSink</code> class available to Flume. We can do that by simply
+copying the <code>kudu-flume-sink-&lt;VERSION&gt;.jar</code> jar file from the Kudu distribution to the
+<code>$FLUME_HOME/plugins.d/kudu-sink/lib</code> directory in the Flume installation. The jar file contains
+<code>KuduSink</code> and all of its dependencies (including Kudu java client classes).</p>
+
+<p>At a minimum, the Kudu Flume Sink needs to know where the Kudu masters are
+(<code>agent1.sinks.sink1.masterAddresses = localhost</code>) and which Kudu table should be used for writing
+Flume events to (<code>agent1.sinks.sink1.tableName = stats</code>). The Kudu Flume Sink doesn’t create this
+table, it has to be created before the Kudu Flume Sink is started.</p>
+
+<p>You may also notice the <code>batchSize</code> parameter. Batch size is used for batching up to that many
+Flume events and flushing the entire batch in one shot. Tuning batchSize properly can have a huge
+impact on ingest performance of the Kudu cluster.</p>
+
+<p>Here is a complete list of KuduSink parameters:</p>
+
+<table>
+  <thead>
+    <tr>
+      <th>Parameter Name</th>
+      <th>Default</th>
+      <th>Description</th>
+    </tr>
+  </thead>
+  <tbody>
+    <tr>
+      <td>masterAddresses</td>
+      <td>N/A</td>
+      <td>Comma-separated list of “host:port” pairs of the masters (port optional)</td>
+    </tr>
+    <tr>
+      <td>tableName</td>
+      <td>N/A</td>
+      <td>The name of the table in Kudu to write to</td>
+    </tr>
+    <tr>
+      <td>producer</td>
+      <td>org.apache.kudu.flume.sink.SimpleKuduEventProducer</td>
+      <td>The fully qualified class name of the Kudu event producer the sink should use</td>
+    </tr>
+    <tr>
+      <td>batchSize</td>
+      <td>100</td>
+      <td>Maximum number of events the sink should take from the channel per transaction, if available</td>
+    </tr>
+    <tr>
+      <td>timeoutMillis</td>
+      <td>30000</td>
+      <td>Timeout period for Kudu operations, in milliseconds</td>
+    </tr>
+    <tr>
+      <td>ignoreDuplicateRows</td>
+      <td>true</td>
+      <td>Whether to ignore errors indicating that we attempted to insert duplicate rows into Kudu</td>
+    </tr>
+  </tbody>
+</table>
+
+<p>Let’s take a look at the source code for the built-in producer class:</p>
+
+<pre><code class="language-java">public class SimpleKuduEventProducer implements KuduEventProducer {
+  private byte[] payload;
+  private KuduTable table;
+  private String payloadColumn;
+
+  public SimpleKuduEventProducer(){
+  }
+
+  @Override
+  public void configure(Context context) {
+    payloadColumn = context.getString("payloadColumn","payload");
+  }
+
+  @Override
+  public void configure(ComponentConfiguration conf) {
+  }
+
+  @Override
+  public void initialize(Event event, KuduTable table) {
+    this.payload = event.getBody();
+    this.table = table;
+  }
+
+  @Override
+  public List&lt;Operation&gt; getOperations() throws FlumeException {
+    try {
+      Insert insert = table.newInsert();
+      PartialRow row = insert.getRow();
+      row.addBinary(payloadColumn, payload);
+
+      return Collections.singletonList((Operation) insert);
+    } catch (Exception e){
+      throw new FlumeException("Failed to create Kudu Insert object!", e);
+    }
+  }
+
+  @Override
+  public void close() {
+  }
+}
+</code></pre>
+
+<p><code>SimpleKuduEventProducer</code> implements the <code>org.apache.kudu.flume.sink.KuduEventProducer</code> interface,
+which itself looks like this:</p>
+
+<pre><code class="language-java">public interface KuduEventProducer extends Configurable, ConfigurableComponent {
+  /**
+   * Initialize the event producer.
+   * @param event to be written to Kudu
+   * @param table the KuduTable object used for creating Kudu Operation objects
+   */
+  void initialize(Event event, KuduTable table);
+
+  /**
+   * Get the operations that should be written out to Kudu as a result of this
+   * event. This list is written to Kudu using the Kudu client API.
+   * @return List of {@link org.kududb.client.Operation} which
+   * are written as such to Kudu
+   */
+  List&lt;Operation&gt; getOperations();
+
+  /*
+   * Clean up any state. This will be called when the sink is being stopped.
+   */
+  void close();
+}
+</code></pre>
+
+<p><code>public void configure(Context context)</code> is called when an instance of our producer is instantiated
+by the KuduSink. SimpleKuduEventProducer’s implementation looks for a producer parameter named
+<code>payloadColumn</code> and uses its value (“payload” if not overridden in Flume configuration file) as the
+column which will hold the value of the Flume event payload. If you recall from above, we had
+configured the KuduSink to listen for events generated from the <code>vmstat</code> command. Each output row
+from that command will be stored as a new row containing a <code>payload</code> column in the <code>stats</code> table.
+<code>SimpleKuduEventProducer</code> does not have any configuration parameters, but if it had any we would
+define them by prefixing it with <code>producer.</code> (<code>agent1.sinks.sink1.producer.parameter1</code> for
+example).</p>
+
+<p>The main producer logic resides in the <code>public List&lt;Operation&gt; getOperations()</code> method. In
+SimpleKuduEventProducer’s implementation we simply insert the binary body of the Flume event into
+the Kudu table. Here we call Kudu’s <code>newInsert()</code> to initiate an insert, but could have used
+<code>Upsert</code> if updating an existing row was also an option, in fact there’s another producer
+implementation available for doing just that: <code>SimpleKeyedKuduEventProducer</code>. Most probably you
+will need to write your own custom producer in the real world, but you can base your implementation
+on the built-in ones.</p>
+
+<p>In the future, we plan to add more flexible event producer implementations so that creation of a
+custom event producer is not required to write data to Kudu. See
+<a href="https://gerrit.cloudera.org/#/c/4034/">here</a> for a work-in-progress generic event producer for
+Avro-encoded Events.</p>
+
+<h2 id="conclusion">Conclusion</h2>
+
+<p>Kudu is a scalable data store which lets us ingest insane amounts of data per second. Apache Flume
+helps us aggregate data from various sources, and the Kudu Flume Sink lets us easily store
+the aggregated Flume events into Kudu. Together they enable us to create a data warehouse out of
+disparate sources.</p>

+
+&lt;p&gt;Although the Kudu server is written in C++ for performance and efficiency, developers can write
+client applications in C++, Java, or Python. To make it easier for Java developers to create
+reliable client applications, we’ve added new utilities in Kudu 1.9.0 that allow you to write tests
+using a Kudu cluster without needing to build Kudu yourself, without any knowledge of C++,
+and without any complicated coordination around starting and stopping Kudu clusters for each test.
+This post describes how the new testing utilities work and how you can use them in your application
+tests.&lt;/p&gt;

+
+&lt;h2 id=&quot;user-guide&quot;&gt;User Guide&lt;/h2&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;Note: It is possible this blog post could become outdated – for the latest documentation on using
+the JVM testing utilities see the
+&lt;a href=&quot;https://kudu.apache.org/docs/developing.html#_jvm_based_integration_testing&quot;&gt;Kudu documentation&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;h3 id=&quot;requirements&quot;&gt;Requirements&lt;/h3&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;In order to use the new testing utilities, the following requirements must be met:&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;ul&gt;
+  &lt;li&gt;OS
+    &lt;ul&gt;
+      &lt;li&gt;macOS El Capitan (10.11) or later&lt;/li&gt;
+      &lt;li&gt;CentOS 6.6+, Ubuntu 14.04+, or another recent distribution of Linux
+ &lt;a href=&quot;https://kudu.apache.org/docs/installation.html#_prerequisites_and_requirements&quot;&gt;supported by Kudu&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
+    &lt;/ul&gt;
+  &lt;/li&gt;
+  &lt;li&gt;JVM
+    &lt;ul&gt;
+      &lt;li&gt;Java 8+&lt;/li&gt;
+      &lt;li&gt;Note: Java 7+ is deprecated, but still supported&lt;/li&gt;
+    &lt;/ul&gt;
+  &lt;/li&gt;
+  &lt;li&gt;Build Tool
+    &lt;ul&gt;
+      &lt;li&gt;Maven 3.1 or later, required to support the
+&lt;a href=&quot;https://github.com/trustin/os-maven-plugin&quot;&gt;os-maven-plugin&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
+      &lt;li&gt;Gradle 2.1 or later, to support the
+&lt;a href=&quot;https://github.com/google/osdetector-gradle-plugin&quot;&gt;osdetector-gradle-plugin&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
+      &lt;li&gt;Any other build tool that can download the correct jar from Maven&lt;/li&gt;
+    &lt;/ul&gt;
+  &lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;/ul&gt;
+
+&lt;h3 id=&quot;build-configuration&quot;&gt;Build Configuration&lt;/h3&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;In order to use the Kudu testing utilities, add two dependencies to your classpath:&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;ul&gt;
+  &lt;li&gt;The &lt;code&gt;kudu-test-utils&lt;/code&gt; dependency&lt;/li&gt;
+  &lt;li&gt;The &lt;code&gt;kudu-binary&lt;/code&gt; dependency&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;/ul&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;The &lt;code&gt;kudu-test-utils&lt;/code&gt; dependency has useful utilities for testing applications that use Kudu.
+Primarily, it provides the
+&lt;a href=&quot;https://github.com/apache/kudu/blob/master/java/kudu-test-utils/src/main/java/org/apache/kudu/test/KuduTestHarness.java&quot;&gt;KuduTestHarness class&lt;/a&gt;
+to manage the lifecycle of a Kudu cluster for each test. The &lt;code&gt;KuduTestHarness&lt;/code&gt; is a
+&lt;a href=&quot;https://junit.org/junit4/javadoc/4.12/org/junit/rules/TestRule.html&quot;&gt;JUnit TestRule&lt;/a&gt;
+that not only starts and stops a Kudu cluster for each test, but also has methods to manage the
+cluster and get pre-configured &lt;code&gt;KuduClient&lt;/code&gt; instances for use while testing.&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;The &lt;code&gt;kudu-binary&lt;/code&gt; dependency contains the native Kudu (server and command-line tool) binaries for
+the specified operating system. In order to download the right artifact for the running operating
+system it is easiest to use a plugin, such as the
+&lt;a href=&quot;https://github.com/trustin/os-maven-plugin&quot;&gt;os-maven-plugin&lt;/a&gt; or
+&lt;a href=&quot;https://github.com/google/osdetector-gradle-plugin&quot;&gt;osdetector-gradle-plugin&lt;/a&gt;, to detect the
+current runtime environment. The &lt;code&gt;KuduTestHarness&lt;/code&gt; will automatically find and use the &lt;code&gt;kudu-binary&lt;/code&gt;
+jar on the classpath.&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;WARNING: The &lt;code&gt;kudu-binary&lt;/code&gt; module should only be used to run Kudu for integration testing purposes.
+It should never be used to run an actual Kudu service, in production or development, because the
+&lt;code&gt;kudu-binary&lt;/code&gt; module includes native security-related dependencies that have been copied from the
+build system and will not be patched when the operating system on the runtime host is patched.&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;h4 id=&quot;maven-configuration&quot;&gt;Maven Configuration&lt;/h4&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;If you are using Maven to build your project, add the following entries to your project’s
+&lt;code&gt;pom.xml&lt;/code&gt; file:&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;div class=&quot;highlight&quot;&gt;&lt;pre&gt;&lt;code class=&quot;language-xml&quot; data-lang=&quot;xml&quot;&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;nt&quot;&gt;&amp;lt;build&amp;gt;&lt;/span&gt;

+    &lt;span class=&quot;c&quot;&gt;&amp;lt;!-- Used to find the right kudu-binary artifact with the Maven&lt;/span&gt;

+    &lt;span class=&quot;nt&quot;&gt;&amp;lt;scope&amp;gt;&lt;/span&gt;test&lt;span class=&quot;nt&quot;&gt;&amp;lt;/scope&amp;gt;&lt;/span&gt;

+  &lt;span class=&quot;nt&quot;&gt;&amp;lt;dependency&amp;gt;&lt;/span&gt;
+    &lt;span class=&quot;nt&quot;&gt;&amp;lt;groupId&amp;gt;&lt;/span&gt;org.apache.kudu&lt;span class=&quot;nt&quot;&gt;&amp;lt;/groupId&amp;gt;&lt;/span&gt;

+    &lt;span class=&quot;nt&quot;&gt;&amp;lt;version&amp;gt;&lt;/span&gt;1.9.0&lt;span class=&quot;nt&quot;&gt;&amp;lt;/version&amp;gt;&lt;/span&gt;
+    &lt;span class=&quot;nt&quot;&gt;&amp;lt;classifier&amp;gt;&lt;/span&gt;${os.detected.classifier}&lt;span class=&quot;nt&quot;&gt;&amp;lt;/classifier&amp;gt;&lt;/span&gt;
+    &lt;span class=&quot;nt&quot;&gt;&amp;lt;scope&amp;gt;&lt;/span&gt;test&lt;span class=&quot;nt&quot;&gt;&amp;lt;/scope&amp;gt;&lt;/span&gt;
+  &lt;span class=&quot;nt&quot;&gt;&amp;lt;/dependency&amp;gt;&lt;/span&gt;
+&lt;span class=&quot;nt&quot;&gt;&amp;lt;/dependencies&amp;gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/code&gt;&lt;/pre&gt;&lt;/div&gt;
+
+&lt;h4 id=&quot;gradle-configuration&quot;&gt;Gradle Configuration&lt;/h4&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;If you are using Gradle to build your project, add the following entries to your project’s
+&lt;code&gt;build.gradle&lt;/code&gt; file:&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;div class=&quot;highlight&quot;&gt;&lt;pre&gt;&lt;code class=&quot;language-groovy&quot; data-lang=&quot;groovy&quot;&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;plugins&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;{&lt;/span&gt;
+  &lt;span class=&quot;c1&quot;&gt;// Used to find the right kudu-binary artifact with the Gradle&lt;/span&gt;
+  &lt;span class=&quot;c1&quot;&gt;// property ${osdetector.classifier}&lt;/span&gt;
+  &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;id&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;s2&quot;&gt;&amp;quot;com.google.osdetector&amp;quot;&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;version&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;s2&quot;&gt;&amp;quot;1.6.2&amp;quot;&lt;/span&gt;
+&lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;}&lt;/span&gt;
+
+&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;dependencies&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;{&lt;/span&gt;
+   &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;testCompile&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;s2&quot;&gt;&amp;quot;org.apache.kudu:kudu-test-utils:1.9.0&amp;quot;&lt;/span&gt;
+   &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;testCompile&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;s2&quot;&gt;&amp;quot;org.apache.kudu:kudu-binary:1.9.0:${osdetector.classifier}&amp;quot;&lt;/span&gt;
+&lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;}&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/code&gt;&lt;/pre&gt;&lt;/div&gt;
+
+&lt;h2 id=&quot;test-setup&quot;&gt;Test Setup&lt;/h2&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;Once your project is configured correctly, you can start writing tests using the &lt;code&gt;kudu-test-utils&lt;/code&gt;
+and &lt;code&gt;kudu-binary&lt;/code&gt; artifacts. One line of code will ensure that each test automatically starts and
+stops a real Kudu cluster and that cluster logging is output through &lt;code&gt;slf4j&lt;/code&gt;:&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;div class=&quot;highlight&quot;&gt;&lt;pre&gt;&lt;code class=&quot;language-java&quot; data-lang=&quot;java&quot;&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;nd&quot;&gt;@Rule&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;kd&quot;&gt;public&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;KuduTestHarness&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;harness&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;=&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;k&quot;&gt;new&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;nf&quot;&gt;KuduTestHarness&lt;/spa [...]
+
+&lt;p&gt;The &lt;a href=&quot;https://github.com/apache/kudu/blob/master/java/kudu-test-utils/src/main/java/org/apache/kudu/test/KuduTestHarness.java&quot;&gt;KuduTestHarness&lt;/a&gt;
+has methods to get pre-configured clients, start and stop servers, and more. Below is an example
+test to showcase some of the capabilities:&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;div class=&quot;highlight&quot;&gt;&lt;pre&gt;&lt;code class=&quot;language-java&quot; data-lang=&quot;java&quot;&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;kn&quot;&gt;import&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;nn&quot;&gt;org.apache.kudu.*&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;;&lt;/span&gt;

+Although the Kudu server is written in C++ for performance and efficiency, developers can write
+client applications in C++, Java, or Python. To make it easier for Java developers to create

-&lt;p&gt;Apache Kudu 1.6.0 is a minor release that offers new features, performance
-optimizations, incremental improvements, and bug fixes.&lt;/p&gt;
-
-&lt;p&gt;Release highlights:&lt;/p&gt;
-
-&lt;!--more--&gt;
-
-&lt;ol&gt;
-  &lt;li&gt;Kudu servers can now tolerate short interruptions in NTP clock
-synchronization. NTP synchronization is still required when any Kudu daemon
-starts up.&lt;/li&gt;
-  &lt;li&gt;Tablet servers will no longer crash when a disk containing data blocks
-fails, unless that disk also stores WAL segments or tablet metadata. Instead
-of crashing, the tablet server will shut down any tablets that may have lost
-data locally and Kudu will re-replicate the affected tablets to another
-tablet server. More information can be found in the documentation under
-&lt;a href=&quot;/releases/1.6.0/docs/administration.html#disk_failure_recovery&quot;&gt;Recovering from Disk Failure&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;/li&gt;
-  &lt;li&gt;Tablet server startup time has been improved significantly on servers
-containing large numbers of blocks.&lt;/li&gt;
-  &lt;li&gt;The Spark DataSource integration now can take advantage of scan locality for
-better scan performance. The scan will take place at the closest replica
-instead of going to the leader.&lt;/li&gt;
-  &lt;li&gt;Support for Spark 1 has been removed in Kudu 1.6.0 and now only Spark 2 is
-supported. Spark 1 support was deprecated in Kudu 1.5.0.&lt;/li&gt;
-  &lt;li&gt;HybridTime timestamp propagation now works in the Java client when using
-scan tokens.&lt;/li&gt;
-  &lt;li&gt;Tablet servers now consider the health of all replicas of a tablet before
-deciding to evict one. This can improve the stability of the Kudu cluster
-when multiple servers temporarily go down at the same time.&lt;/li&gt;
-  &lt;li&gt;A bug in the C++ client was fixed that could cause tablets to be erroneously
-pruned, or skipped, during certain scans, resulting in fewer results than
-expected being returned from queries. The bug only affected tables whose
-range partition columns are a proper prefix of the primary key.
-See &lt;a href=&quot;https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KUDU-2173&quot;&gt;KUDU-2173&lt;/a&gt; for more
-information.&lt;/li&gt;
-&lt;/ol&gt;

-&lt;p&gt;The Apache Kudu project only publishes source code releases. To build Kudu
-1.6.0, follow these steps:&lt;/p&gt;
-
-&lt;ol&gt;
-  &lt;li&gt;Download the &lt;a href=&quot;/releases/1.6.0/&quot;&gt;Kudu 1.6.0 source release&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;/li&gt;
-  &lt;li&gt;Follow the instructions in the documentation to
-&lt;a href=&quot;/releases/1.6.0/docs/installation.html#build_from_source&quot;&gt;build Kudu 1.6.0 from source&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;/li&gt;
-&lt;/ol&gt;
-
-&lt;p&gt;For your convenience, binary JAR files for the Kudu Java client library, Spark
-DataSource, Flume sink, and other Java integrations are published to the ASF
-Maven repository and are
