Re: Writing multiple tables from reducer
I have written a blog on this a while ago where I was writing to multiple
tables from my mapper class. You can look into it at

Key things are,
a) job.setOutputFormatClass (MultiTableOutputFormat.class);
b) In your reducer , you would stick with the if else to write to the
corresponding HBase tables.
