Provide a migration path to commons-configuration2 to better support Hadoop 3



    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Resolved
    • Priority: Critical
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: 1.7.2, 1.8.1
    • Fix Version/s: 1.9.0
    • Component/s: None
    • Environment:

      CentOS 7
      Accumulo 1.7.x, 1.8.x
      Hadoop 3.0.0-alpha 2
      Zookeeper 3.4.9


      I was investigating running either Accumulo 1.7.x or 1.8.x on Hadoop 3.0.0-alpha 2 and ran into a couple of issues. Since Accumulo assumes some dependencies will be provided by Hadoop (per ACCUMULO-1244), if those dependencies change then Accumulo might also need to change.

      HADOOP-13660 bumped commons-configuration from 1.6 -> 2.1 for Hadoop 3.0.0 and so NoClassDefFoundErrors are thrown per the below stack trace on accumulo init:

      I worked around this by dropping the commons-configuration 1.6 jar on Accumulo's classpath, but this should either be provided by Accumulo now or Accumulo should be bumped to commons-configuration2 as well. Note that the latter change would cause problems for Hadoop 2 installations.

      There was actually one more thing that needed added to the accumulo-site.xml in order to get Accumulo to run in Hadoop 3:


      The reason for this is because Hdfs.java moved from the hadoop-hdfs jar to the hadoop-client-api jar.
