Subject Re: Custom Class Loader for Hadoop M/R jobs?
Date Wed, 14 Apr 2010 14:56:17 GMT
I agree that it writing a custom classloader is non-trivial (and I
don't know if anyone has done this in the MapReduce context), so this
would best be handled by the framework. I've opened
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1700 for this.

You're interfacing with a 3rd party OS tool that uses a later release of the same jar.
