Hi Dhruba,

Yes. It is done on purpose through HADOOP-3986. The configuration is 
static configuration in JobClient,  it is not the Job Configuration. It 
was used  to  parse  -libjars, -files and -archives options only, if the 
application does not implement Tool as they are part of GenericOptions.

Where do you to want access the Job configuration? If it is in map() or 
reduce(), you should use configure() method.
