This is a preliminary evaluation by the Big Data SIG of the work required to get Apache HBase into Fedora. This work has been done based upon the 0.96 branch building against the hadoop 2.0.5-alpha package in Fedora 20.
Issues To Be Resolved
Missing Java Dependencies
|htrace, htrace-core, htrace-zipkin||Available|
|jamon-api, javon-java-parent, jamon-maven-plugin, jamon-processor, jamon-runtime||Available|
|jruby-common, jruby-complete||Available||jruby 1.7.2 is packaged in Fedora, but 1.6.8 is requested by Hbase. gid:aids differ, might need porting.|
|libthrift||Review||RHBZ #982285||willb||Will Benton has some RPM artifacts at http://freevariable.com/thrift/|
Dependency Version Mismatches
HBase wants to use commons-math2. It will need to be ported to the latest version of commons-math in Fedora.
Need to correct import statements for commons-logging. Should be compile issue only.
HBase wants to use jetty 6. It will need to be ported to support the latest version of jetty in Fedora.
HBase wants to use tomcat/jasper version 5.x. It will need to be ported to use the latest version of tomcat in Fedora.
Numerous test failures pop out when running the test suite against local rpms. These will need to be investigated and compared against the baseline build.
