Getting job information, joining a job in hadoop 0.20.1
I'm using Hadoop 0.20.1, I submitted a job using the
org.apache.hadoop.mapreduce.Job approach e.g.

org.apache.hadoop.mapreduce.Job _job

However, I would like to,from another Java program, monitor this job:

1) get map/reduce progress
2) get counters
3) status
4) and the ability to join i.e wait for completion.

say jd = "job_201003190003_1855"

org.apache.hadoop.mapreduce.JobID jid org.apache.hadoop.mapreduce.JobID.forName(jd);
org.apache.hadoop.mapred.JobClient jclient = new

Now, what?

says, I should use
1. public RunningJob getJob(JobID jobid)

but, in my installation of hadoop 0.20.1, i do not have such a method.

2. Even if I could, runningjob.getCounters() returns the old deprecated
Counters. Is this compatible with the new mapreduce code?

Is there any org.apache.mapreduce  code that given the JobId, I can monitor
and wait for completion for the job?

I can get a org.apache.hadoop.mapreduce.JobContext with the Job ID, but
there should be a way to get the Job.

One option, is to serialize the job_ variable and load it in later(not my
first choice)
