How to connect camel-hdfs to the Cloudera version of Hadoop in ServiceMix?

Solution Verified - Updated -


The camel-hdfs component can be used to connect to an Apache Hadoop server and push or consume messages to/from Hadoop.

Cloudera offers its own Enterprise version of Hadoop, which is fully based on Apache Hadoop. But it is based on a different version of Apache Hadoop than the camel-hdfs component utilizes internally.
The result at runtime is very likely a protocol error caused by on the wire incompatibility.

So how to connect camel-hdfs to a Hadoop server provided by Cloudera?


  • Camel, all versions including support for camel-hdfs
  • Cloudera CDH3u4
  • Cloudera CDH4
