Subject Re: Multiple input schemas in MapReduce?
Date Wed, 11 May 2011 21:18:34 GMT
Hi Markus,

You could use Cascading.  The Cascading.Avro extension automatically
transforms the Avro data into a TupleEntry (a generic object similar to
java.util.Map).  Then you can combine and process data as however you wish

Please check this entry for more info:
