Subject RE: Profiling map reduce jobs?
Date Tue, 02 Jul 2013 13:59:22 GMT
     I'm using the newer version of the mapreduce API (org.apache.hadoop.mapreduce, not org.apache.hadoop.mapred).
I was under the impression that the older API doesn't work well with the newer one. Do you
have an example of using the older OutputFormat with the newer API by any chance?

I just advice to use MultipleOutputFormat, instead of MultipleOurput.write
