I'm not that comfortable with java, so here is my question. In the
MapReduceBase class, i have implemented the configure method, which
does not throw an exception. Suppose I detect an error in some
options, i wish to raise an exception(in the configure method) - is
there a way to do that? Is there a way to stop the job in case the
configure method fails?,
 My map extends MapReduceBase and my reduce extends MapReduceBase -
two separate classes.
