What are the MapR Ecosystem Packs (MEPs)?
- A way to decouple ecosystem install and upgrades.
- A selected set of stable and popular components, connectors, and interfaces from the Hadoop ecosystem that we fully support on the MapR Platform.
- A single repository of selected versions of these components fully tested to be interoperable.
- A delivery vehicle for connectors and developer APIs that allow us to provide common Hadoop ecosystem interfaces to MapR components (e.g., Kafka Connect for MapR Streams).
Each MEP contains a subset of the greater supported Hadoop ecosystem certified to work fully and completely with the other components in each release. This allows us to provide more nuanced support like bundling Spark JARs into Oozie, for example.
