Redeploying the Oozie ShareLib
Some Oozie actions – specifically DistCp, Streaming, Sqoop, and Hive –
require external JAR files in order to run. Instead of having to keep these JAR files in each
lib folder, or forcing you to manually manage them using the
oozie.libpath property on every workflow using one of these actions, Oozie
provides the ShareLib.
The ShareLib behaves very similarly to
oozie.libpath, except that it is
specific to the aforementioned actions and their required JARs.
