Thanks for using Cascading.
General Information:
Project and contact information:
This distribution includes four Cascading jar files:
cascading-x.y.z.jar - all relevant Cascading class files and libraries, with a 'lib' folder
cascading-core-x.y.z.jar - all Cascading Core class files
cascading-xml-x.y.z.jar - all Cascading XML operations class files
cascadgin-test-x.y.z.jar - all Cascading tests and test utilities
To retrieve all immediate dependencies, excluding Hadoop (see below)
> cd <path to cascading>
> ant retrieve
To build Cascading,
> ant -Dhadoop.home=<path to hadoop> compile
To make all jars:
> ant -Dhadoop.home=<path to hadoop> jar
To run all tests:
> ant -Dhadoop.home=<path to hadoop> test
where <path to cascading> is the directory created after cloning or uncompressing the Cascading
distribution, and <path to hadoop> is where you installed Hadoop.
Note that ant will not interpret the ~ path, use ${user.home} instead. For example,
Alternatively, you can put hadoop.home inside the file in the cascading project directory.
To use with Hadoop, we suggest stuffing cascading-core and cascading-xml jar files, and all third-party libs
into the 'lib' folder of your job jar and executing via 'hadoop jar your.jar <your args>'.
For example, your job jar would look like this (via: jar -t your.jar)
/<all your class and resource files>
/lib/<cascading third-party jar files>
Hadoop will unpack the jar locally and remotely (in the cluster) and add any libraries in 'lib' to the classpath.
This is a feature specific to Hadoop.
The cascading-x.y.z.jar file is typically used with scripting languages and is completely self contained.
This ant snippet works quite well (you may need to override cascading.home):
<property name="cascading.home" location="${basedir}/../cascading"/>
<property file="${cascading.home}/"/>
<property name="cascading.release.version" value="x.y.z"/>
<property name="cascading.filename.core" value="cascading-core-${cascading.release.version}.jar"/>
<property name="cascading.filename.xml" value="cascading-xml-${cascading.release.version}.jar"/>
<property name="cascading.libs" value="${cascading.home}/lib"/>
<property name="cascading.libs.core" value="${cascading.libs}"/>
<property name="cascading.libs.xml" value="${cascading.libs}/xml"/>
<condition property="cascading.path" value="${cascading.home}/"
<available file="${cascading.home}/${cascading.filename.core}"/>
