             Summary: Windows: Wildcard classpath variables not expanded 
against resources contained in archives
                 Key: YARN-2720
             Project: Hadoop YARN
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Craig Welch
            Assignee: Craig Welch

On windows there are limitations to the length of command lines and environment 
variables which prevent placing all classpath resources into these elements.  
Instead, a jar containing only a classpath manifest is created to provide the 
classpath.  During this process wildcard references are expanded by inspecting 
the filesystem.  Since archives are extracted to a different location and 
linked into the final location after the classpath jar is created, resources 
referred to via wildcards which exist in localized archives  (.zip, tar.gz) are 
not added to the classpath manifest jar.  Since these entries are removed from 
the final classpath for the container they are not on the container's classpath 
as they should be.
