> With the current Hadoop, it is a bit hard for the user to implement data joining apps.

> HADOOP-475/485 attempt to provide some support for data joining jobs, but it seems to
be had to implement.
> This Jira rather calls for a application level support. 
> The idea is to provide a generic map/reduce classes implementing data join jobs, 
> and allows the user to extend those classes to add their special logic. 
> In particular, the user needs to define a mapper class 
> that extends DataJoinMapperBase class  to implement methods for the
> following functionalities:
> 1. Compute the source tag of input values 
> 2. Compute the map output value object 
> 3. Compute the map output key object
>  
> The source tag will be used by the reducer to determine from which source
> (which table in SQL terminology) a value comes. Computing the map output
> value object amounts to performing projecting/filtering work in a SQL
> statement (through the select/where clauses). Computing the map output key
> amounts to choosing the join key. This class provides the appropriate plugin
> points for the user defined subclasses to implement the appropriate logic.
> The the user needs to define a reducer class 
> that extends DataJoinReduceBase class  to implement the following:
>     protected abstract TaggedMapOutput combine(Object[] tags, Object[] values);
>  
> The above method is expected to produce one output value from an array of
> records of different sources. The user code can also perform filtering here.
> It can return null if it decides to the records do not meet certain conditions.
> That is pretty much the user need to do in order to create a map/reduce job to join data

> from different sources.
