Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Docker build process
Date Tue, 19 Mar 2019 08:17:57 GMT

Thank you Eric to describe the problem.

I have multiple small comments, trying to separate them.

I. separated vs in-build container image creation

These are not the only disadvantages (IMHO) as I wrote it in in the
previous thread and the issue [1]

Using in-build container image creation doesn't enable:

1. to modify the image later (eg. apply security fixes to the container
itself or apply improvements for the startup scripts)
2. create images for older releases (eg. hadoop 2.7.1)

I think there are two kind of images:

a) images for released artifacts
b) developer images

I would prefer to manage a) with separated branch repositories but b)
with (optional!) in-build process.

II. Agree with Steve. I think it's better to make it optional as most of
the time it's not required. I think it's better to support the default
dev build with the default settings (=just enough to start)

III. Maven best practices


I think this is a good article. But this is not against profiles but
creating multiple versions from the same artifact with the same name
(eg. jdk8/jdk11). In Hadoop, profiles are used to introduce optional
steps. I think it's fine as the maven lifecycle/phase model is very
static (compare it with the tree based approach in Gradle).

 Maven best practice (https://dzone.com/articles/maven-profile-best-practices) has explained
that do not use profile to trigger different artifact builds because it will introduce maven
artifact naming conflicts on maven repository using this pattern.  Maven offers flags to skip
certain operations, such as -DskipTests -Dmaven.javadoc.skip=true -pl or -DskipDocker.  It
seems worthwhile to make some corrections to follow best practice for Hadoop build.

 Docker is mandatory for default build.
