      Description

      Why does this property does not handle URL ?
      I think it could be more comfortable to specify the URL of a jar instead of an absolute path in the local file system.
      It also could be great to be able to specify a path relative to the job configuration file.

      WDYT ?

        I don't see this to be a problem anymore. We need to build that jar up and place it on the (D)FS, if I understand what he's talking about, so URL does not make sense.
