Subject Re: Current state of scrunch

Thanks. I'm just a little seduced by the syntactical simplicity of writing in scala, so I
figured I'd take a look.

BTW, (silly beginner question) do you have any pointers on how to run scrunch from the scala

If I just try something like:
../scala-2.9.3/bin/scala -classpath `hadoop classpath`:0.5.0-incubating.jar:crunch-scrunch-0.5.0-incubating.jar:lib/guava-11.0.2.jar:`hadoop

scala> val pipeline = Pipeline.mapReduce

I get No FileSystem for scheme: file
at org.apache.hadoop.fs.FileSystem.getFileSystemClass(
at org.apache.hadoop.fs.FileSystem.createFileSystem(

I figure there must be a simpler way.

Subject: Re: Current state of scrunch

Hey John,

I think Scrunch has a good foundation right now, but yes, there is some work to do to expose
new functionality in the Java APIs. I'd like to spend some more time on Scrunch for the next
release, so if you come across something you need, please let me know and I'll add it straightaway.

I am considering taking a closer look at migrating some of our existing cruch code to scala,
and I was wondering about the current state of the scrunch code.
Is it generally being kept in synch with the mainline crunch development?

I assume most functionality is being delegated to the underlying crunch implementation but
presumably there is still work needed as features are added to crunch. No?
