Hadoop – running another job in hadoop

hadoop

I don't understand how to make a job use the same output directory
directory to write a different file in it. I have tried commeting
and ucommenting this line, but it still doesn't work. I get the following
exception when I comment it. Anyhow in the code I am trying to run two
separate jobs with the same reducer but a different mapper.

EDIT: And no, the output of one job is not the input of the other, the reason
I want them in the same folder is because they are inputs to yet another map
reduce job I want to do.

FileOutputFormat.setOutputPath(job, new Path(args[1]));

        // renaming to output1
        boolean isRenamed = hdfs.rename(fromPath, toPath);
        if (isRenamed)
        {
            System.out.println("Renamed to /user/hadoop/output/output1!");

        // FileOutputFormat.setOutputPath(job, new Path(args[1]));


        System.exit( job.waitForCompletion(true) ? 0 : 1);
    }

adding the following to my code causes other errors:

    job.setInputFormatClass(FileInputFormat.class);
    job.setOutputFormatClass(FileOutputFormat.class);

    FileInputFormat.addInputPath(job, new Path(args[0]));
    FileOutputFormat.setOutputPath(job, new Path(args[1]));

System.exit(job.waitForCompletion(true) ? 0 : 1);

Best Solution

You have to provide a new Configuration object for the second job. BTW why aren't you using these methods for your output format?

job.setInputFormatClass(FileInputFormat.class); job.setOutputFormatClass(FileOutputFormat.class);

Here is a blogpost about recursing jobs, thats quite the same stuff you are doing.

EDIT: By the way, what is your intend to write into a folder that is the output of the previous job aka the input of the new job? This will just result in another exception like: "Output path already exists".
