Install additional software on your Amazon EMR cluster

EmrCluster provides the supportedProducts field that installs third-party software on an Amazon EMR cluster, for example, it lets you install a custom distribution of Hadoop, such as MapR. It accepts a comma-separated list of arguments for the third-party software to read and act on. The following example shows how to use the supportedProducts field of EmrCluster to create a custom MapR M3 edition cluster with Karmasphere Analytics installed, and run an EmrActivity object on it.
