Weekly Check-in #10

Published: 08/22/2019

In the pat week, I was trying to set up hadoop using Dockerfile.

What did I do this week?

Setting up Hadoop in Docker with my limited knowledge in both is becoming a more difficult task due to the limited resources available on how to particularly set this up over docker using dockerfile. Also everytime I have to build the container from scratch, downloading all the files again and setting it up is a time consuming process. I tried an approach this week that got most of the instructions on the dockerfile working, yet there is an issue with starting the containers. I have addded the corresponding config files that would be used by docker and also a start-up shell script that is run while building the container to start hadoop after installing it. 

What is coming up next?

I need to get the dockerfileworking by this week so that i can move ahead and refine the hadoop source classes and add more tests if possible.

Did you get stuck anywhere?

Debugging the dockerfile was a difficult task for me. My mentor was very understanding and helped me in fixing it.
