Ignore my response..
I read your mail wrongly and assumed that you wanted to sort by the
decreasing order of counts of the url words.

Your first MapReduce phase is very similar to the WordCount example. The
only difference is that you need to create LongWritable objects for the
values. The output format should be SequenceFileOutputFormat.class.

Run a subsequent MapReduce phase with the input format set to
SequenceFileInputFormat.class, the map class set to InverseMapping.class,
and, the OutputKeyComparator set to LongWritable.DecreasingComparator.class.

By the way, the 2nd mapreduce phase won't work unless you patch your version
of hadoop with
https://issues.apache.org/jira/secure/attachment/12360717/1535_01.patch .
This hasn't been committed yet.

I have a modified WordCount program with the following characteristics:

input file:

mapreduce output:
urla.com 3
urlb.com 2
urlc.com 4
urld.com 1

Next, tried using a comparator with a different JobConf and mapreduce:


but it didn't work because the values are IntWritable and my OutputCollector
wasn't picking up the right things...

What do I need to collect in both the map and reduce for the final result to
sort descending high-low?
