    • $ unzip
    • $ cd hadoop2x-eclipse-plugin-master/src/contrib/eclipse-plugin/
    • $ ant jar -Dversion=2.2.0 -Declipse.home={Eclipse-Home} -Dhadoop.home={Hadoop-Home}

  1. Thanks a lot for detailed steps for configuring the plug-in which are perfectly working.

    Can you please let me know how to provide input file for programs while choosing "Run on Hadoop option so that program will work on provided input file.

    1. Sure! Thanks for your comment.

      There are two steps:
      1) copy your local file into Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) with the command as follows:
      $ bin/hdfs dfs -copyFromLocal local_FS_filename target_on_HDFS
      $ bin/hdfs dfs -copyFromLocal /user/username/hdfsdata

      2) In Eclipse, put arguments "input_file output_dir" into "Run Configurations" -> "Arguments" -> "Program arguments",
      where input_file is the path of your input file on HDFS
      and output_dir is the output directory on HDFS
