Custom service implemented as a CSD with NO parcel ?


Custom service implemented as a CSD with NO parcel ?

New Contributor

Dear all,


I developed a simple service (a Kafka consumer) written in java language, compiled in a single .JAR file, started by a trivial bash script (java -jar ....   --<some command line parameters>).


I published it on my Cloudera Manager as a single CSD including both the and then .JAR file in the /script directory of the CSD jar, with no parcel.


Everything works fine, but I would like to know if it is a bad practise as I definitely need an external parcel and, in this case, what are the side effects of my choice of packing everything in the CSD jar.


Thank you in advance.
