Subject Re: ShellSpout Cannot Execute Arbitrary Command
Date Fri, 04 Jul 2014 23:53:46 GMT
In, method launch, this line seems to cause the
IOException: File(context.getCodeDir()));

The path it is attempting to use is
(my topology name is 'stitcher') and does NOT exist. It is not true that
ShellProcess is unable to find the command as I originally suspected.

Investigating further, it seems that when I package my class files into a
jar for submission to storm, I must include a 'resources' directory; this
seems to remove the IOException thrown.

I have not found any documentation stating this must be done. I am not
using maven in my workflow; I am manually compiling the class files and
packaging them into a jar file. Perhaps that is the reason?
