Subject External libraries usage
Date Wed, 28 Dec 2011 00:10:07 GMT
Another newbie question.
Suppose I want to use an external library (jar) in the mapper / reducer

In our environment, I added the jars into a specific folder and added them
However, when running mapper that uses one of the jars, it could not find
the classes in that jar.

I thought that it might be in our environment (I am not managing our

Then I read about DistributedCache.
Should I use it with methods such as addArchiveToClassPath,
addFileToClassPath, addCachArchive to use jar libraries?
If so, which method is more appropriate ?

If not, how do we load jar libraries to each VM?
