> This Jira tracks the work needed to move existing winutils tests from bat files to Java.
We decided to go with Java for the following reasons:
> 1. It showed to be quite hard to modify bat scripts and add new test cases (people are
generally not comfortable writing bat scripts)
> 2. Debugging a test case failure in bat script is not trivial
> 3. It turned that we are not running the test scripts frequently
> Cons:
> One now needs JDK and Hadoop jar to compile and run winutils tests. However, in the context
of Hadoop this is not an issue so we decided to go with something we all feel more comfortable
