Currently the projects supports two versions of the Hadoop platform viz 1.1 and 2.2. The project is based on eclipse plugin architecture and can  possibly support other versions like 0.23, CDH4 etc in next releases.

Eclipse Support

The project works with eclipse 3.6 and above. It has been tested on Indigo and Juno, and can work on Kepler as well.

The projects aims to simplify the Hadoop platform for developers. It is still young and would require support from community to flourish. To learn more or to get involved with the project check the project page or the mailing lists.
