I'm trying to use Hadoop map-side join in my application and wondering if anybody knows if there's a way to use it with the new Hadoop API ("org.apache.hadoop.mapreduce.*") instead of the old
Hadoop API ("org.apache.hadoop.mapred.*"). The input format I'm trying to use for the join is "CompositeInputFormat", which is in the old API package and looks like it expects everything (job configuration,
input split, etc) to be from the old API too. This is a problem for me because I'm using the new API to create my map/reduce jobs so I can't just use "CompositeInputFormat" as my job's input format. I wonder if the only way to get the map-side join work is
to use the old API to create map/reduce jobs. I appreciate any response regarding this issue.
