      It's hard to test non-Java programs that rely on significant mapreduce functionality. The patch I'm proposing shortly will let you just type "bin/hadoop jar hadoop-hdfs-hdfswithmr-test.jar minicluster" to start a cluster (internally, it's using Mini


      Cluster) with a specified number of daemons, etc. A test that checks how some external process interacts with Hadoop might start minicluster as a subprocess, run through its thing, and then simply kill the java subprocess.

      I've been using just such a system for a couple of weeks, and I like it. It's significantly easier than developing a lot of scripts to start a pseudo-distributed cluster, and then clean up after it. I figure others might find it useful as well.

      I'm at a bit of a loss as to where to put it in 0.21. hdfs-with-mr tests have all the required libraries, so I've put it there. I could conceivably split this into "minimr" and "minihdfs", but it's specifically the fact that they're configured to talk to each other that I like about having them together. And one JVM is better than two for my test programs.
