At this point, running on Windows does require hadoop.dll in the library
path and winutils.exe accessible through HADOOP_HOME. This differs from
Linux, where libhadoop.so is a soft dependency, and you can choose to run
without it. (There are just too many things broken in subtle ways if we
don't interact properly with the native Windows APIs.)
I wonder if there is anything we can configure in our pom.xml files so that
the library path and HADOOP_HOME requirements get injected into the Eclipse
project files automatically when you run mvn eclipse:eclipse. This would
make it easier for Windows users to import the project correctly. I don't
use Eclipse anymore, so I'm not deeply familiar with the options, and I
didn't find anything helpful from my quick research.
BTW, the HADOOP_HOME requirement will change at some point. HADOOP-9422
tracks removal of this dependency, so you might want to consider setting a
watch on that issue.
