Subject Re: extracting input to a task from a (streaming) job?
Date Fri, 26 Sep 2008 20:17:56 GMT
I've create a jira describing my problems running under IsolationRunner.
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-4041

If anyone is using I.R. successfully to re-run failed tasks in a single JVM, 
can you please, pretty please, describe on how you do that?

Thank you,

  -Yuri
