Subject Re: hadoop streaming using java as mapper & reducer
Date Tue, 29 May 2012 23:14:26 GMT
I'm confused.  First, most people don't use streaming in conjunction with Java since Hadoop
supports Java directly...although I think you were saying in your parenthetical comment at
the top of your post that you may have a legitimate reason for doing that.  Then, in your
code, you appear to be creating a "classic" MapReduce program, not a streaming one.  I say
this because your Mapper is a typical mapper, extending the Mapper from the Hadoop API.  I
would expect a streaming Mapper to be a top-level class, not a derivation from the API.  Furthermore,
it would gather its inputs not through the overridden map() method but rather from stdin.
 Likewise, it would send output to stdout.

Am I completely misunderstanding your situation?
