Hi Alex,

While most of the java development projects happens on Window's machine and then the deployment happens on the Linux, Unix or Solaris servers. There are some java applications that run on windows servers. If the java applications that are running on Windows want to consume the hadoop results and want to run the hadoop clusters on windows then what is the approach that is best suited for this kind of applications.
