    Hi Krish,

    You can follow the tutorials, or you can run a hive job which does a select from a table with a limit of 1000.

    This will start a MR job

    private Text word = new Text();

    public void map(LongWritable key, Text value,
    OutputCollector<Text, IntWritable> output, Reporter reporter)
    throws IOException {
    String line = value.toString();
    StringTokenizer tokenizer = new StringTokenizer(line);
    while (tokenizer.hasMoreTokens()) {
    output.collect(word, one);

    Reducer<Text, IntWritable, Text, IntWritable> {
    public void reduce(Text key, Iterator<IntWritable> values,
    OutputCollector<Text, IntWritable> output, Reporter reporter)
    throws IOException {
