Subject Re: Sorting Numbers using mapreduce
Date Mon, 06 Sep 2010 06:05:52 GMT
The critical item is that your map's output key should be IntWritable
instead of Text. The default comparator for IntWritable will give you
properly sorted numbers. If you stringify the numbers and output them
as text, they'll get sorted as strings.
