Subject RE: Skipping entire task
Date Sat, 05 Jan 2013 14:14:00 GMT
Thinking here... if you submitted the task programmatically you should be
able to capture the failure of the task and gracefully move past it to your
next tasks.

To say it in a long-winded way:  Let's say you submit a job to Hadoop, a
java jar, and your main class implements Tool. That code has the
responsibility to submit a series of jobs to hadoop, something like this: 

try{
  Job myJob = new MyJob(getConf());
  myJob.submitAndWait();
}catch(Exception uhhohh){
  //Deal with the issue and move on
}
Job myNextJob = new MyNextJob(getConf());
myNextJob.submit();

Just pseudo code there to demonstrate my thought.

But it is also possible to skip entire tasks?
