Repository to build xgboost4j JARs.
The build would always use the latest version of xgboost and its submodules.
Sadly, there is no way around it at the moment, as the submodules are pinned
to specific commits, and
dmlc-core received quite a few patches to be buildable
on both CIs. In the future, this behaviour could be safely removed.
Otherwise, the following versions of the dependencies are used
HADOOP_VERSION=2.6.0-cdh5.5.0 SPARK_VERSION=2.3.1 SCALA_VERSION=2.11.12
You could probably change them to more recent/different version, but this has not been validated yet.
The Windows build is x64 only and uses Visual Studio 2015.
The Linux build is done inside a CentOS6 Docker container to make sure the resulting JARs can be executed on ancient Linux distributions like CentOS.
To make a release:
- Wait :)
