Hadoop : JPS can not find Java installed

my configurations are

hduser@worker1:/usr/local/hadoop/conf$ jps
The program 'jps' can be found in the following packages:
 * openjdk-6-jdk
 * openjdk-7-jdk
Ask your administrator to install one of them

I have java installed though

hduser@worker1:/usr/local/hadoop/conf$ java -version
java version "1.6.0_23"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.11pre) (6b23~pre10-0ubuntu5)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.0-b11, mixed mode)

hduser@worker1:/usr/local/hadoop/conf$ echo $JAVA_HOME 

and also set up in conf/

hduser@worker1:/usr/local/hadoop/conf$ cat | grep JAVA_HOME
# The only required environment variable is JAVA_HOME.  All others are
# set JAVA_HOME in this file, so that it is correctly defined on
 export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-openjdk

How can I make JPS work?


  • It seems like open-jdk does not have jps in it. For hadoop, installing sun-jvm would be a better choice.
