Subject Re: MapReduce Tutorial tweak
Date Tue, 27 Aug 2013 15:57:11 GMT
As far as I undersstand, StringTokenizer.nextToken returns Java String type
object which does not implement the required Writable and Comparable
interfaces needed to Hadoop Mapreduce serialization and transport. The Text
class does that and is compatible and thus that is why that is being used
to wrap Java String and pass it on.

Shahab
