2. Building a Runnable Distribution

To create a Kyuubi distribution like those distributed by Kyuubi Release Page, and that is laid out so as to be runnable, use ./build/dist in the project root directory.

For more information on usage, run ./build/dist --help

./build/dist - Tool for making binary distributions of Kyuubi Server

Usage:
+--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| ./build/dist [--name <custom_name>] [--tgz] [--spark-provided] <maven build options> |
+--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
name:           -  custom binary name, using project version if undefined
tgz:            -  whether to make a whole bundled package
spark-provided: -  whether to make a package without Spark binary

For instance,

./build/dist --name custom-name --tgz

This results a Kyuubi distribution named kyuubi-{version}-bin-custom-name.tar.gz for you.

If you are planing to deploy Kyuubi where spark is provided, in other word, it’s not required to bundle spark binary, use

./build/dist --tgz --spark-provided

Then you will get a Kyuubi distribution without spark binary named kyuubi-{version}-bin-without-spark.tar.gz.
