-Job jar not removed from staging directory on job failure/how to share a job jar using distributed cache
Bertrand Dechoux 2012-10-05, 16:58
I am launching my job using the command line and I observed that when the
provided input path do not match any files, the jar in the staging
repository is not removed.
It is removed on job termination (success or failure) but here the job
isn't even really started so it may be an edge case.
Has anyone seen the same behaviour? (I am using 1.0.3)
Here is an extract of the stack trace with hadoop related classes.

Second question is a bit related because one of its consequence would
nullify the impact of the above 'bug'.
Is it possible to set directly the main job jar as a jar already inside
>From what I know, the configuration points to a local jar archive which is
uploaded each time to the staging repository.
The same question was asked in the jira but without clear resolution.
My question might be related to
which is resolved for next version. But it seems to be only about uberjar
and I am using a standard jar.
If it works with a hdfs location, what are the details? Won't it be cleaned
during job termination? Why not? Will it also be setup within the
PS : I know there are others solutions to my problem. I will look at Oozie.
And worst case, I can create a FileSystem instance myself to check whether
the job should be really launched or not. Both could work but both seem
overkill in my context.
