Cannot compile WordCount.java

Explorer

Hi, I'm following Douglas Eadline's tutorial http://www.informit.com/store/hadoop-and-spark-fundamentals-livelessons-9780134770864 and try to compile the WordCount example, but I fail. Eadline suggests to comile it with hadoop-core.jar, which was renamed in newer versions as I understand.

I tried with javac -classpath /usr/hdp/current/hadoop-mapreduce-client/hadoop-mapreduce-client-core.jar -d wordcount_classes WordCount.java but I still get a load of errors. Any suggestions? Where can I find the correct jar?

The hadoop command line utility also provides an option to get the correct classpath produced something like following which you can use:

Example:

# export CLASSPATH=`hadoop classpath`:.:

# echo $CLASSPATH
# javac -d wordcount_classes WordCount.java



.

Thank you, indeed it worked with

javac -cp `hadoop classpath` -d wordcount_classes WordCount.java
