#Apache Hadoop 2.5.1 Docker image
Build the image
If you'd like to try directly from the Dockerfile you can build the image as:
docker build -t meabed/hadoop-debian:latest .
Pull the image
The image is also released as an official Docker image from Docker's automated build repository - you can always pull or refer the image when launching containers.
docker pull meabed/hadoop-debian:latest
Start a container
In order to use the Docker image you have just build or pulled use:
docker run -i -t meabed/hadoop-debian:latest /etc/bootstrap.sh -bash
You can run one of the stock examples:
cd $HADOOP_PREFIX # run the mapreduce bin/hadoop jar share/hadoop/mapreduce/hadoop-mapreduce-examples-2.5.0.jar grep input output 'dfs[a-z.]+' # check the output bin/hdfs dfs -cat output/*
Hadoop native libraries, build, Bintray, etc
The Hadoop build process is no easy task - requires lots of libraries and their right version, protobuf, etc and takes some time - we have simplified all these, made the build and released a 64b version of Hadoop nativelibs on this Bintray repo. Enjoy.
As mentioned previousely, a Docker file was created and released in the official Docker repository
