The problem is a regression introduced by recent fix https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8562 .
That fix makes some improvements for Windows platform, but breaks native code work on Unix.
Namely, let's see the diff
HADOOP-8562 of the file hadoop-common-project/hadoop-common/src/main/native/src/org/apache/hadoop/io/compress/snappy/SnappyCompressor.c :
Here we see that all the class implementation got enclosed into "if defined HADOOP_SNAPPY_LIBRARY" directive, and the point is that "HADOOP_SNAPPY_LIBRARY" is not defined.
This causes the class implementation to be effectively empty, what, in turn, causes the UnsatisfiedLinkError to be thrown in the runtime upon any attempt to invoke the native methods implemented there.
The actual intention of the authors of
HADOOP-8562 was (as we suppose) to invoke "include config.h", where "HADOOP_SNAPPY_LIBRARY" is defined. But currently it is not included because it resides inside "if defined HADOOP_SNAPPY_LIBRARY" block.
Similar situation with "ifdef UNIX", because UNIX or WINDOWS variables are defined in "org_apache_hadoop.h", which is indirectly included through "include "org_apache_hadoop_io_compress_snappy.h"", and in the current code this is done after code "ifdef UNIX", so in the current code the block "ifdef UNIX" is not executed on UNIX.
The suggested patch fixes the described problems by reordering the "include" and "if" preprocessor directives accordingly, bringing the methods of class org.apache.hadoop.io.compress.snappy.SnappyCompressor back to work again.
Of course, Snappy native libraries must be installed to build and invoke snappy native methods.
