# Welcome to Bigtop!
Bigtop (http://incubator.apache.org/bigtop/) is a project for the development of
packaging and tests of the Apache Hadoop (http://hadoop.apache.org/)
ecosystem, currently in the Apache Incubator.
The primary goal of Bigtop is to build a community around the
packaging and interoperability testing of Hadoop-related
projects. This includes testing at various levels (packaging,
platform, runtime, upgrade, etc...) developed by a community with a
focus on the system as a whole, rather than individual projects.
## Building Bigtop
Packages have been built on Ubuntu 10.10, CentOS 5 and openSUSE
11.4. They can probably be built on other platforms as well.
Building Bigtop requires the following tools:
* Java JDK 1.6
* Apache Forrest 0.8 (requires 32bit version of Java JDK 1.5)
* Apache Ant
* Apache Maven
* git
* subversion
* autoconf
* automake
* liblzo2-dev
* libz-dev
* sharutils
* libfuse-dev
On Debian-based systems one also needs
* build-essential dh-make debhelper devscripts
* reprepro
On openSUSE 11.4+, in addition, one also needs to ensure the following is installed:
relaxngDatatype
docbook-utils docbook-simple
asciidoc
fuse-devel
docbook5
docbook5-xsl-stylesheets
libxml2-devel
xmlformat
xmlto
libxslt
libopenssl-devel
## Building packages
$ make [component-name]-[rpm|deb]
## Building local YUM/APT repositories
$ make [component-name]-[yum|apt]
## Running the tests
WARNING: since testing packages requires installing them on a live
system it is highly recommended to use VMs for that.
Testing Bigtop is done using iTest framework. For more documentation
on iTest visit the iTest page
(http://cloudera.github.com/bigtop/iTest) but here's 2 steps to get started:
* install package testing iTest artifacts locally:
cd test/src/smokes/package/ && mvn install -DskipTests -DskipITs -DperformRelease
* use those locally installed iTest package testing artifacts to run a suite:
cd test/suites/package/ && mvn clean verify -Dcdh.repo.file.url.CentOS=XXX -D'org.apache.maven-failsafe-plugin.testInclude=**/TestPackagesReadiness.*'
