Spring Hadoop Samples
== Sample Applications for Spring for Apache Hadoop
This repository contains several sample applications that show how you can use Spring for Apache Hadoop.
NOTE: These samples are built using version 2.2.0.RELEASE of Spring for Apache Hadoop project. For examples built against older versions check out the Git "tag" that corresponds to your desired version.
=== Overview of Spring for Apache Hadoop
Hadoop has a poor out of the box programming model. Writing applications for Hadoop generally turn into a collection of scripts calling Hadoop command line applications. Spring for Apache Hadoop provides a consistent programming model and declarative configuration model for developing Hadoop applications.
Together with Spring Integration and Spring Batch, Spring for Apache Hadoop can be used to address a wide range of use cases
== Additional Resources
Many of the samples were taken from the O'Reilly book link:http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920024767.do[Spring Data]. Using the book as a companion to the samples is quite helpful to understanding the samples and the full feature set of what can be done using Spring technologies and Hadoop.
