Version 0.8.0

Release date: October 7, 2013

Version 0.8.0 has the following notable changes:

  • Dataset Repository URIs. Repositories can be referred to (and opened) by a URI. For example, repo:hdfs://namenode:8020/data specifies a Dataset Repository stored in HDFS. Dataset descriptors carry the repository URI.
  • Dataset API. Removed APIs that were deprecated in 0.7.0. Deprecated some constructors in favor of builders. See API Diffs for all the changes.
  • Upgrade to Parquet 1.2.0.
  • Morphlines Library
    • Added option for commands to register health checks (not just metrics) with the MorphlineContext.
    • Added registerJVMMetrics command that registers metrics that are related to the Java Virtual Machine with the MorphlineContext. For example, this includes metrics for garbage collection events, buffer pools, threads and thread deadlocks.
    • Added morphline commands to publish the metrics of all morphline commands to JMX, SLF4J and CSV files. The new commands are: startReportingMetricsToJMX, startReportingMetricsToSLF4 and startReportingMetricsToCSV.
    • Added EXPERIMENTAL cdk-morphlines-metrics-servlets maven module with new startReportingMetricsToHTTP command that exposes liveness status, health check status, metrics state and thread dumps via a set of HTTP URIs served by Jetty, using the AdminServlet.
    • Added cdk-morphlines-hadoop-core maven module with new downloadHdfsFile command for transferring HDFS files, e.g. to help with centralized configuration file management.
    • Added option to specify boost values to loadSolr command.
    • Added several performance enhancements.
    • Upgraded cdk-morphlines-solr-cell maven module from tika-1.3 to tika-1.4 to pick up some bug fixes.
    • Upgraded cdk-morphlines-core maven module from to 0.2.3 to pick up some bug fixes (Internally shaded version).
    • The constructor of AbstractCommand now has an additional parameter that refers to the CommandBuilder. The old constructor has been deprecated and will be removed in the next release.
    • The ISO8601_TIMEZONE grok pattern now allows the omission of minutes in a timezone offset.
    • Ensured morphline commands can refer to record field names containing arbitrary characters. Previously some commands could not refer to record field names containing the ‘.’ dot character. This limitation has been removed.
