hadoop file append
Hi list,

I'm using Hadoop 1.0.3 for a MapReduce task and I thought it might be a simple job to append a Counter value and some text to the end of a file (which ultimately will be in AWS S3). How wrong I was :)

I've been reading about o.a.h.fs.FileSystem.append and whether it does or doesn't work in my version of hadoop, and I'm not sure if it does or not. Can anyone say for definite either way? I'm going with the conclusion that it can't be trusted to perform as expected.

What I'd like to do is this: Perform a daily MapReduce job and add up some some values along the way, and as well as the output of the MR job, add that day's date with the Counter value to the end of a file (in a different location), so the file grows by one line daily. Assuming o.a.h.fs.FileSystem.append is currently out of favour, do you have any suggestions for achieving this?
