Major CDAP Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a problem with a HADOOP_HOME exception stacktrace when unit-testing an Application
  • Fixed an issue with Hive creating directories in /tmp in the Standalone and unit-test frameworks
  • Fixed a problem with type inconsistency of Service API calls, where numbers were showing up as strings
  • Fixed an issue with the premature expiration of long-term Authentication Tokens
  • Fixed an issue with the Dataset size metric showing data operations size instead of resource usage

Known Issues

  • Metrics for MapReduce jobs aren't populated on secure Hadoop clusters
  • The metric for the number of cores shown in the Resources view of the CDAP Console will be zero
    unless YARN has been configured to enable virtual cores
