To facilitate the development work with  Java SDK of MapReduce and UDF, MaxCompute provides Eclipse Development Plug-in. This plug-in can simulate the running process of MapReduce and  UDF to provide local debugging methods and simple template generation.

  • Current versions of Eclipse Neon are likely to cause plug-in loading to fail, please use the Eclipse Luna version.

  • To download this plug-in, click Here.

  • Unlike the local running mode provided by MapReduce, Eclipse plug-in cannot synchronize data with MaxCompute.  Data must be manually copied to the  warehouse directory of Eclipse plug-in.

After downloading the Eclipse plug-in, decompress the software package to find the following jar:


Place the plug-in into the subdirectory plugins in Eclipse installation directory.  Start the Eclipse plug-in, and click Open Perspective in the upper right corner.

After clicking the button, the following dialog box is displayed:

Select ODPS and click OK.  The MaxCompute icon appears in the upper right corner, indicating that the plug-in takes effect.
