Re: Issue in access static object in MapReduce
Hi Stuti

You can pass the json object as a configuration property from your main
class then Initialize this static json object on the configure() method.
Every instance of map or reduce task will have this configure()
method executed once before the map()/reduce() function . So all the
executions of map()/reduce() on each record can have a look up into the
json object.

*public* *void* configure(JobConf job)
