Java provides the Process class to help you launch and read/write
can use this to spawn your program from your code, to write input into
the process's stdin, and to read its output via its stdout/etc.. The
hadoop-streaming parts of Apache Hadoop is very similar in its
operations - but allows little control back on the launched java map
class which you seem to require.
The tasks (both M and R types) provide entry and exit API points
(configure()/setup(), and cleanup()) - allowing you to spawn a process
before map-reads start, and end it after, letting you manage your
spawned process more cleanly.
