Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9991) Fix up Hadoop Poms for enforced dependencies, roll up JARs to latest versions
Date Fri, 15 Nov 2013 00:35:22 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9991?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13823162#comment-13823162

Colin Patrick McCabe commented on HADOOP-9991:

Thanks for taking a look at this task.  It's a difficult one.

One thing I'd like to add is that we now have httpcore-4.2.5 in trunk combined with httpclient-3.1.
 However, these two jars provide many of the same classes!  The reason is because the Apache
httpclient library was end-of-lifed and folded into the httpcore project.

I am concerned about this dependency since it seems like we should be including one or the
other, but not both (given that they provide some of the same classes)  I tried getting rid
of httpclient 3.1, but it is not possible since we use the custom URL class which is implemented
there, and which was dropped in httpcore (they advise using java.net.URI instead).  Perhaps
we could weed out these uses of the custom URI and try dropping the old client?

> If you try using Hadoop downstream with a classpath shared with HBase and Accumulo, you
soon discover how messy the dependencies are.
> Hadoop's side of this problem is
> # not being up to date with some of the external releases of common JARs
> # not locking down/excluding inconsistent versions of artifacts provided down the dependency
