You can submit the job using any one of the below ways,

1. If you submit the job using JobClient, you need to create JobConf and submit the job using JobClient.runJob(JobConf conf) API.

2. Also you can submit the job by creating instance for Job by passing Configuration object and submit(using submit() or waitForCompletion()) as you mentioned in the below code. This case no need to create an instance for JobConf.

The code is:

public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
    Configuration conf = new Configuration();
    String[] otherArgs = new GenericOptionsParser(conf,
    if (otherArgs.length != 2) {
      System.err.println("Usage: wordcount <in> <out>");
    Job job = new Job(conf, "word count");
    FileInputFormat.addInputPath(job, new Path(otherArgs[0]));
    FileOutputFormat.setOutputPath(job, new Path(otherArgs[1]));
    System.exit(job.waitForCompletion(true) ? 0 : 1);

I understand it now. But, is it possible to write a program using the
JobClient to submit the hadoop job?

To do that I have to create a JobConf manually. Am I thinking right?
