Hadoop + HBase + Cygwin + Windows 7 x64

In this post I will describe how to get a Hadoop environment with HBase running in Cygwin on Windows 7 x64.

Having spent the better part of a week reading through blog posts and documentation, I found that none of them covered the process in full detail, at least not for the software versions I intended to use.

This guide was written for Cygwin 1.7.7, Hadoop 0.21.0 and HBase 0.20.6.

You will additionally need ZooKeeper 3.3.1 in order to get HBase to run properly.

My question is: why is Cygwin needed?

Update: Thanks Alan Said (@ alansaid ) more details about why Cygwin is needed ☞ HADOOP-6767 and ☞ Running Hadoop 0.20.2 on Windows without Cygwin
