Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-12803) RunJar should allow overriding the manifest Main-Class via a cli parameter.
Date Tue, 01 Mar 2016 16:43:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-12803?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15174000#comment-15174000

Jason Lowe commented on HADOOP-12803:

Thanks for the patch, Gera!   Unfortunately this breaks backwards compatibility.  For example,
http://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/WordCount references this sample command-line:
bin/hadoop jar hadoop-*-examples.jar wordcount [-m <#maps>] [-r <#reducers>] <in-dir>

With the proposed change it results in this error:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: wordcount

I'm not sure how we're going to differentiate a main class from an arbitrary first argument
to pass on.  Previously it used the presence of a main class in the manifest to know whether
the first argument is a main class or the first argument to the program being launched.  Not
necessarily how I would have done it, but that's how it works and users have built things
around those semantics.
