Cloudera Development Kit (CDK)
For faster, easier development on top of Hadoop
The Cloudera Development Kit (CDK) is an open source (Apache License) set of libraries, tools, and documentation that make it easier for developers to build systems on top of the Apache Hadoop stack.
The goals of the CDK are to:
- Codify expert patterns and practices for building data-oriented systems
- Let you focus on business logic, not plumbing or infrastructure
- Provide smart defaults for platform choices
- Support at-your-own-pace adoption via loosely-coupled modules
This project is organized into modules. Modules may be independent or have dependencies on other modules within the CDK. When possible, dependencies on external projects are minimized.
A Maven plugin is also available.
