Re: Is it always called part-00000?
Hi Mark,

1. If you use the old API, the ouput file is named part-00000, and if you
use the new API, the output file will be part-r-00000, and there will be
usually more than 1 output files, the output file number is determined by
the reducer number of your map-reduce job.

2. If you'd like to consume the output of the first job, you just need to
set the output folder of the first job as the input of second job
