Subject Re: Preferred ways to specify input and output directories to Hadoop jobs
Date Wed, 08 Feb 2012 18:21:48 GMT
From what I know, a lot of guys including us provide the input and output dirs as position
arguments for our custom mapreduce jobs along with other position arguments required for each
job. These position arguments are assigned to mapred.input.dir, mapred.output.dir and other
mapred params in our custom driver classes for each jobs.

Right. There is no default mechanism in Hadoop for using positional
arguments as input/output directory parameters. What I'm wondering is if
other people have done like me and written this mechanism themselves.
