      Description

      For components that require the installation of additional artifacts that Bigtop cannot distribute (due to license incompatability or other issues), Bigtop should provide both a standardized location to which the artifacts can be installed, and the ability to auto-detect the locations to which they may already be installed.

      Specifically, Sqoop and Hive (and possibly other components) require the installation of the MySQL-Java connector when using MySQL for imports, exports, or metadata storage. This needs to be done by copying the JAR to a directory that is already in the classpath for those components (such as /usr/lib/sqoop/lib and /usr/lib/hive/lib). Some repositories distribute packages that install the jar to /usr/share/java.
