Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAPREDUCE-3246) Make Task extensible to support modifications of Task or even alternate programming paradigms
Date Sun, 27 Nov 2011 14:38:40 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-3246?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13157910#comment-13157910

Kang Xiao commented on MAPREDUCE-3246:


a good solution for creating lightweight programming paradigms by resuing mapreduce.

a example programming paradigm may be helpful.

> One of MRv2's goal is to support alternate programming paradigms, but building a application
using YARN from the bottom is not trivial. In fact most component of MapReduce can be reused,
mostly the scheduler/master side, and we can make changes/extensions only on the task/slave
side, such as native tasks, hash-aggregation style combiner/reducer interfaces.
> The first thing to do I think is to make task/slave side extensible, more specific, the
Task in JvmTask should serialized with class name, not simply a boolean isMap, and make task
class name configurable in JobConf, there maybe other minor changes. By doing so, developers
can at least extends their own MapTask/ReduceTask.
> I just post my initial thoughts here for opinions. If this change is OK, I can submit
a patch, this is just a trivial work.
