Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-7083) Allow SecureIO to be disabled for developer workstations
Date Fri, 04 Feb 2011 02:25:22 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7083?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12990428#comment-12990428

Alejandro Abdelnur commented on HADOOP-7083:


Developers that work on Hadoop applications(on top of Hadoop, not Hadoop itself) normally
download and use a Hadoop binary distribution, they don't build it.

By requiring the use of native code for a basic feature like security to work, Hadoop is making
things quite difficult for Hadoop application developers.

The alternative would be to make sure that Hadoop bundles native libraries for the most commons
developer platforms.

I'd be happy either way, but I think that how things are it is not (or it will soon be not)
a reasonable thing for Hadoop application developers.

Or any other idea on how to solve this?

> In testing with secure Hadoop, the new requirement for native code is annoying on platforms
like OSX where the native code can be tricky to get compiled and working. We should allow
developers to disable this aspect of security by setting a special flag.
