Subject Multiple mappers, different parameter values
Date Tue, 02 Apr 2013 16:46:56 GMT

I have a situation wherein I have multiple mappers. I am using 
MultipleInputs class to add them.

Now, I need to pass different parameters to different mappers. For e.g. 
lets say I have a parameter 'num.iterations' that is set differently for 
different mappers. One way to pass parameters to mappers is to set them 
in a Configuration object:

Configuration conf = new Configuration();
conf.set("num.iterations", "100");

However using this I can't set the value differently for different 
mappers. How do I achieve this?
