Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-11080) Convert Windows native build in hadoop-common to use CMake.
Date Tue, 09 Sep 2014 22:56:31 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-11080?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14127726#comment-14127726

Chris Nauroth commented on HADOOP-11080:

In HDFS-573, I used CMake for the Windows libhdfs build, so we have a precedent that demonstrates
it can be made to work.  This also means that Windows build boxes already should have CMake

Before we proceed with this, I'd like to check opinions of a few other major Windows contributors.
 Notifying [~ivanmi], [~chuanliu], [~shanyu], [~chris.douglas], [~arpitagarwal], [~bikassaha]
and [~mattf].  If any of you object to using CMake instead of checked-in project files, would
you please reply?  Thank you.

> The Windows native build in hadoop-common currently relies on a set of checked-in MSBuild
project files.  The logic of these project files is largely redundant with the logic of CMakeLists.txt.
 It causes some dual maintenance overhead, because certain build changes require separate
changes for both CMake and MSBuild.  This issue proposes to convert the Windows build process
to use CMake instead of checked-in project files.
