If you are getting "Exception from container-launch:org.apache.hadoop.util.Shell$ExitCodeException" in FAILED application's Diagnostics (or Command prompt) and "java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/hadoop/service/CompositeService" in 'stderr' containerlogs while running any Hadoop example on Windows, then add all the required Hadoop jars to the property 'yarn.application.classpath' in yarn-site.xml configuration file.


Build, Install, Configure and Run Apache Hadoop 2.2.0 in Microsoft Windows OS

By Abhijit Ghosh on Nov 3, 2013 1:56:41 PM

Good news for Hadoop developers who want to use Microsoft Windows OS for their development activities. Finally Apache Hadoop 2.2.0 release officially supports for running Hadoop on Microsoft Windows as well. But the bin distribution of Apache Hadoop 2.2.0 release does not contain some windows native components (like winutils.exe, hadoop.dll etc). As a result, if we try to run Hadoop in windows, we'll encounter ERROR util.Shell: Failed to locate the winutils binary in the hadoop binary path.

In this article, I'll describe how to build bin native distribution from source codes, install, configure and run Hadoop in Windows Platform.
