Hadoop Configurations, also known and shims and the Pentaho Big Data Adaptive layer, are collections of Hadoop libraries required to communicate with a specific version of Hadoop (and related tools: Hive, HBase, Sqoop, Pig, etc.). They are designed to be easily configured.
pentaho-hadoop-shims uses the maven framework.
This is a maven project, and to build it use the following command
$ mvn clean install
Optionally you can specify -Drelease to trigger obfuscation and/or uglification (as needed)
Optionally you can specify -Dmaven.test.skip=true to skip the tests (even though you shouldn't as you know)
The build result will be a Pentaho package located in
This will run all unit tests in the project (and sub-modules). To run integration tests as well, see Integration Tests below.
$ mvn test
If you want to remote debug a single java unit test (default port is 5005):
$ cd core $ mvn test -Dtest=<<YourTest>> -Dmaven.surefire.debug
Running tests on Windows
Running tests on Window requires additional environment set up because of existing problems running Hadoop on Windows (please see https://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/WindowsProblems).
Exactly it needs to have hadoop.home.dir variable pointed to dir with
Steps to set up environment:
Download winutils.exe binary. E.g. from: https://mvnrepository.com/artifact/org.apache.hadoop/hadoop-winutils
Create any dir (e.g. d:\TEMP_DIR) and bin sub dir in it. Then put winutils.exe in bin:
Set system property
hadoop.home.dir="d:\TEMP_DIR" or just run the Java process with this property:
$ mvn test -Dhadoop.home.dir="d:\TEMP_DIR"
$ mvn clean install -Dhadoop.home.dir="d:\TEMP_DIR"
In addition to the unit tests, there are integration tests that test cross-module operation. This will run the integration tests.
$ mvn verify -DrunITs
To run a single integration test:
$ mvn verify -DrunITs -Dit.test=<<YourIT>>
To run a single integration test in debug mode (for remote debugging in an IDE) on the default port of 5005:
$ mvn verify -DrunITs -Dit.test=<<YourIT>> -Dmaven.failsafe.debug
To skip test
$ mvn clean install -DskipTests
To get log as text file
$ mvn clean install test >log.txt
