Lets update to latest Hadoop 2.7.x
Maven artifacts are still on 2.6.0 version of Apache Hadoop
Olaf, are we still planing to move up to JAVA 8 for release 1.2 ? if yes, we either need to back-port patch in JIRA https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse for Hadoop 2.7.2, or port bigtop patch https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/BIGTOP-2286 for x86 platform as well. Let me know .
Amir Sanjar thanks for reminding me! Personally I feel that we need a compile / deploy switch in order to try out quickly both versions. Anyway: Could you please fix the first link in your comment regarding a backport ? I'll like to look into it.
Seems like JDK8 does not work BIGTOP-2286.
Fixes some lintian errors. Fixes dependency on archive.apache.org.
Aligns with bigtop-tomcat version.
Updated subject line
Thanks a bunch for pushing this in! Amazingly quickly 1.2 releasing is getting shaped up!
