Subject Re: Running map/reduce written in Ruby on Hbase

Hui Ding,

This wouldn't work very well. Streaming is defined so that you pass programs
(any) that can take in input and an output in the filesystem, not HBase
tables. You should instead try to use JRuby like we do for the shell. It
requires some more setup, but since it all runs inside the JVM it eventually

I see that more and more users are interested in using JRuby/Jython for MR
jobs and I know that some companies already uses a wrapper for that ("Happy"
anyone?). I'm sure many would be insterested in seeing this kind of work.
