VMware Creates Spring Hadoop Mashup

It’s supposed to make it easier for enterprise developers to build distributed processing solutions with Apache Hadoop

VMware has integrated the Spring Framework with Apache Hadoop to create what it straightforwardly calls simply Spring Hadoop. It's supposed to make it easier for enterprise developers to build distributed processing solutions with Apache Hadoop. Spring is supposed to simplify data access and be a "natural way to integrate Hadoop systems into the enterprise application landscape." The widgetry is downloadable and available under the Apache 2 license. Among other things it supports configuration, creation and execution of MapReduce, Streaming, Hive, Pig and Cascading jobs via the Spring container and comprehensive HDFS data access support through JVM scripting languages (Groovy, JRuby, Jython, Rhino, etc.).
