Package org.apache.hadoop.mapred.lib.db Description

org.apache.hadoop.mapred.lib.db Package

This package contains a library to read records from a database as an input to a mapreduce job, and write the output records to the database.

The Database to access can be configured using the static methods in the DBConfiguration class. Jobs reading input from a database should use DBInputFormat#setInput() to set the configuration. And jobs writing its output to the database should use DBOutputFormat#setOutput().

Tuples from/to the database are converted to/from Java objects using DBWritable methods. Typically, for each table in the db, a class extending DBWritable is defined, which holds the fields of the tuple. The fields of a record are read from the database using DBWritable#readFields(ResultSet), and written to the database using DBWritable#write(PreparedStatament statement).

An example program using both DBInputFormat and DBOutputFormat can be found at src/examples/org/apache/hadoop/examples/
