Type: New Feature
Affects Version/s: 0.5.0
Fix Version/s: None
We should have a tarball driver for each component, it will be:
- convenient for people to deploy tarball to run map reduce job in a single VM
- Whirr is only for EC2, but we want this tarball driver be generic for Linux user.
- driver should deploy Hadoop tarball by default when deploy other tarball like Hive tarball, or Pig tarball
- driver should be able to deploy multiple projects. For example, if user choose Hive+Pig, then driver will deploy Hadoop tarball + both Hive,Pig tarball
- The version of each project tarball will be same as the version of project Bigtop 0.5 shipped
I already have a prototype, and I am thinking about where to put it and a suitable way to invoke it as a user.
