Subject Re: Doubts in Map reduce programs

One way that I can think of is that you basically need to define your own
InputFormal and RecordReader so that each record is 'a paragraph' or a
'sentence'. The reason being that in regular case, a line terminated by
standard end of line characters is considered as one record for
FileInputFormat. Here, you instead want to get one paragraph as one record
instead of one line. So, once you override a RecordReader, you will have
control on how do you want to define a 'record' that is passed to each map

Some starting points...E.g. look here to define and implement your own
RecordReader for FileInputFormat:
