Subject Re: Reading json format input
Date Wed, 29 May 2013 22:13:03 GMT
Seriously consider Pig (free answer, 4 LOC):

my_data = LOAD 'my_data.json' USING
com.twitter.elephantbird.pig.load.JsonLoader() AS json:map[];
words = FOREACH my_data GENERATE $0#'author' as author,
FLATTEN(TOKENIZE($0#'text')) as word;
word_counts = FOREACH (GROUP words BY word) GENERATE group AS word,
COUNT_STAR(words) AS word_count;
STORE word_counts INTO '/tmp/word_counts.txt';

It will be faster than the Java you'll likely write.
