Subject Re: How to write a Job for importing Files from an external Rest API into Hadoop
Date Mon, 31 Jul 2017 20:05:42 GMT
Hi Ralph!

Although not totally similar to your use case, DistCp may be the closest
thing to what you want.
. The client builds a file list, and then submits an MR job to copy over
all the files.
