Subject Re: When is configure and close run
Date Wed, 24 Jun 2009 17:00:00 GMT
Thank you! Just to confirm. Consider a JVM (that is being reused), has
to reduce K1,{V11,V12,V13..} and K2,{V21,V22,V23,....}. Then the
configure and close methods are called once each for both K1,{V11,...}
and K2,{V2,....}?

Is my understanding correct?

Once again, there is no combiner, and it makes sense that it is not called.

Thank you
