Re: mapreduce on two tables

It'll depend on what processing you want to do on all documents for a
given author. You could either write author -> {list of documents} to
an HDFS file and scan through that file using a MR job to do the
processing. Or you could simply output <author, document> as the
output of the map stage and do the processing on <author, {list of
documents}> in the reduce stage of the same job.
