    Hi Horton,

    I met a issue with run hadoop streaming through webhcat rest API, Could you please help me confirm if this is webhcat bug???

    It works fine when I am using hadoop command
    hadoop jar /usr/lib/hadoop-mapreduce/hadoop-streaming- -input /user/hue/streaming/zbp07detail.txt -output /user/hue/streaming/output -mapper ./ -reducer ./ -file ./ -file ./reduce.

    Then I upload those 2 file to HDFS under(/user/hue/mapreduce) then run the rest call like follow,:
    curl.exe -s -d -d input=/user/hue/mapreduce/inputdata.txt -d output=/user/hue/mapreduce/result/ -d -d -d file=/user/hue/mapreduce/ -d file=/user/hue/mapreduce/ ''

    It doesn’t works expectly. The error log I capture from mapreduce job log is, Could you please help me confirm if this is webhcat bug???:
    templeton: copy hdfs:// => hadoop-streaming.jar
    templeton: starting [/usr/bin/hadoop, jar, hadoop-streaming.jar, -Dmapreduce.job.credentials.binary=/hadoop/yarn/usercache/hue/appcache/application_1380215570194_0022/container_1380215570194_0022_01_000002/container_tokens, -input, /user/hue/mapreduce/inputdata.txt, -output, /user/hue/mapreduce/result/, -mapper,, -reducer,, -file/user/hue/mapreduce/, -file/user/hue/mapreduce/]
