Subject Hbase Map/reduce-How to access individual columns of the table?
Date Tue, 17 Apr 2012 10:07:52 GMT
 have a table called User with two columns ,one called visitorId and the other 
called friend which is a list of strings. I want to check whether the VisitorId 
is in the friendlist. Can anyone direct me as to how to access the table columns 
in a map function? I'm not able to picture how data is output from a map 
function in hbase. My code is as follows.

ublic class MapReduce {

static class Mapper1 extends TableMapper<ImmutableBytesWritable, Text> {

    private int numRecords = 0;
    private static final IntWritable one = new IntWritable(1);

    private final IntWritable ONE = new IntWritable(1);
    private Text text = new Text();
    public void map(ImmutableBytesWritable row, Result values, Context context) 
throws IOException {

        //What should i do here??how do i access the individual columns and       
        ImmutableBytesWritable userKey = new ImmutableBytesWritable(row.get(), 
0, Bytes.SIZEOF_INT);


            //context.write(text, ONE);
        } catch (InterruptedException e) {
            throw new IOException(e);


public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
    Configuration conf = HBaseConfiguration.create();
    Job job = new Job(conf, "CheckVisitor");
    Scan scan = new Scan();
    Filter f = new RowFilter(CompareOp.EQUAL,new SubstringComparator("mId2"));
    TableMapReduceUtil.initTableMapperJob("User", scan, Mapper1.class, 
ImmutableBytesWritable.class,Text.class, job);
