One option is to use the DistributedCache to distributed your job-specific jars, and the DistributedCache.add{Archive|File}ToClassPath
apis to add them to the *classpath* of the job.


I'd doubt if you care, but http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1660 helps too - but
that is coming only in 0.16.0.
