Question on "mapred." vs "mapreduce." settings for Hadoop trunk and 2.x
Regards

 

By looking at the code in trunk and release 2.0.5 I noticed that while most
settings related to MapReduce now have the mapreduce prefix (as in
"mapreduce.job.dir") there are still a few that have the mapred prefix, as
in "mapred.input.format.class", "mapred.mapper.class",  and others.

 

Is there a reason for this?  Or is this just legacy code?

 

Thanks
