-Re: Can dynamic Classes be accessible to Mappers/Reducers?

when submiting a job,the ToolRunnuer or JobClient just distribute your jars
so that tasktrackers can launch/"re-run" it.
In your case,you should have your dynamic class re-generate in
mapper/reducer`s setup method,
or the runtime classloader will miss them all.
