I was planning to add details about the testing in the subsequent voting
As pointed out in the emails above, a lot of work is related to handling
between the platforms related to paths and utilities. These changes lend
to be tested very well by the existing unit tests.
That said, a lot of testing has happened to validate the development done
On branch-1-win, Hortonworks QA has been running a suite of comprehensive
system tests. This involves testing the branch with all the other stack
such as Pig, Hive, HCat, HBase and Oozie. These tests have been done both
Linux and Windows. The testing has also been done both on JDK 6 and 7. In
as Mahadevan pointed out it has also been tested by early customers with
production loads and at scale.
branch-trunk-win has lot of code in common with branch-1-win and hence
from all the above testing. One place where additional work and testing was
in branch-trunk-win is related to YARN. All the MapReduce related work
been validated on single node cluster, cluster sizes with nodes upwards of
