Subject Re: Getting a temporary directory in map jobs
Date Wed, 22 Dec 2010 02:50:22 GMT
If you want a tmp file on a task's local host, just use java's createTempFile from the File
class.  It creates a file in java.io.tmp, which the task runner sets up in the task's workspace
and is cleaned by the TT even if the child jvm exits badly.
