How-to compile Hadoop on Windows 8

  |   Source


Java Installation

After launching executable installation file just set JAVA_HOME environment variable :


Build Hadoop Distribution

  • add maven binary directory into your PATH environment variable In a Visual Studio command prompt :

    cd hadoop-2.6.0-src mvn package -Pdist,native-win -DskipTests -Dtar

The last command compiles java libraries AND binary dynamic libraries. Thats why maven command MUST be launches in a Visual Studio compiler shell. Then you should have some issues like this one :

[ERROR] Failed to execute goal org.apache.hadoop:hadoop-maven-plugins:2.4.0:protoc (compile-protoc) on project hadoop-common: org.apache.maven.plugin.MojoExecutionException: "protoc --version" did not return a version -> [Help 1]

Indeed some dependencies are missing :

Protoc : Hadoop 2.6.0 is dependant of 2.5.0 version. You must download the exact version

Then Hadoop native build is based on CMake. Personally I installed it via Chocolatey

choco install cmake

Then I relaunched maven command line and everything built perfectly.
