Introduction

The project represents a set of utility classes and wrappers around ZooKeeper.

Download

You can download pre-built binaries directly from the github downloads page

  • org.linkedin.zookeeper-server-<version>.tgz: A simple to use prepackaged zookeeper distribution:

      ./bin/zkServer.sh start
    
  • org.linkedin.zookeeper-cli-<version>.tgz: A command line (similar to the one bundled with ZooKeeper) with the idea of having a syntax very close to a 'regular' shell:

        zk.sh ls /a/b/c
        zk.sh du /a/b/d
        zk.sh put localFile.txt /a/b/c
        zk.sh cat /a/b/c
        etc...
    

Compilation

In order to compile the code you need

  • java 1.6

At the top simply run

./gradlew test

which should compile and run all the tests.

IDE Support

You can issue the command (at the top)

./gradlew cleanIdea idea

which will use the gradle IDEA plugin to create the right set of modules in order to open the project in IntelliJ IDEA.

Directory structure

  • org.linkedin.zookeeper-impl: Contains a set of utility classes and wrappers to make it easier to use ZooKeeper:

    • IZooKeeper is an interface/abstraction to ZooKeeper (which is (unfortunately) a class)
    • IZKClient (which extends from IZooKeeper) adds a host of convenient calls and lifecycle listeners
    • ZooKeeperURLHandler is a URL handler which knows how to handle zookeeper:/a/b/c type urls
    • ZooKeeperTreeTracker (the core of this project) essentially keeps an in memory replica of a portion of a tree or entire subtree with easy to use listeners (NodeEventsListener and ErrorListener): you get notified when nodes are added, updated or deleted (you never deal with ZooKeeper watchers, nor have to set them over and over!). You can see a good example of how to use this class in the glu project org.linkedin.glu.agent.tracker.AgentsTrackerImpl
    • StandaloneZooKeeperServer: a simple class to start a standalone ZooKeeper server (simple to use in testing)
  • org.linkedin.zookeeper-cli-impl: A command line (similar to the one bundled with ZooKeeper) with the idea of having a syntax very close to a 'regular' shell:

    zk.sh ls /a/b/c
    zk.sh du /a/b/d
    zk.sh put localFile.txt /a/b/c
    zk.sh cat /a/b/c
    etc...
    
  • org.linkedin.zookeeper-cli: Create the packaged version of the cli.

  • org.linkedin.zookeeper-server: Simply create a packaged server which is easy to install and start. Useful in dev.

5. Installing/Running locally

To install the zookeeper server:

cd org.linkedin.zookeeper-server
../gradlew package-install

then go to the install directory and run

./bin/zkServer start

To install the zookeeper cli:

cd org.linkedin.zookeeper-cli
../gradlew package-install

then go to the install directory and run (to see help)

./bin/zk.sh -h

and then try

./bin/zk.sh ls /

which returns

zookeeper

Note: it should work on any Linux/Unix based system (developped/tested on Mac OS X)

Build configuration

The project uses the org.linkedin.userConfig plugin and as such can be configured

Example:
~/.userConfig.properties
top.build.dir="/Volumes/Disk2/deployment/${userConfig.project.name}"
top.install.dir="/export/content/${userConfig.project.name}"
top.release.dir="/export/content/repositories/release"
top.publish.dir="/export/content/repositories/publish"
