Subject Re: 7 of 487 New window Print all Can JobConf object be declared global and used in mapper and reducer class
Date Wed, 21 Sep 2011 15:20:22 GMT
The map and reduce functions are running a different JVM, so they
never ran the main() method. You can implement a configure(JobConf
job) method in your map and reduce classes which will be passed the
JobConf you used to launch the job.

to JobConf object in the mapper and reducer function.But on doing this I find JobConf object
to be null.Why is this happening .
