One Click Hadoop Launcher
One Click Hadoop Launcher is a Maven plugin that allows to shorten the compile-deploy-test cycle of Hadoop development to under a minute, even if you are on the VPN.
More importantly, you can associate the plugin with a button in your IntelliJ IDE (maybe Eclipse as well) so you can execute the whole compile-deploy-run sequence with one button click. Done many times a day, this saves you mental energy by not needing to switch context to "deployment mode".
Using the plugin
The easiest way is to use My Github Maven Repository

<pluginRepositories> <pluginRepository> <id>Sashas-mvn-repo</id> <name>SashaOv Maven Repo</name> <layout>default</layout> <url>https://raw.github.com/SashaOv/mvn-repo/master</url> </pluginRepository> </pluginRepositories>
