Re: Defining Hadoop Compatibility -revisiting-
The way it has been done in JCK was a specs written in somewhat
formalized language and a tool (called testgen, written in Perl if I
remember correctly) which was dynamically generating a lot of lang
tests. I think this is a middle ground Milind has mentioned.

BTW, it was a _huge_ effort: Sun had two team working on TCK - ~40+
people - working for a few years on that thing.
  Take care,
