Process data with a custom JAR - Amazon EMR

Process data with a custom JAR

A custom JAR runs a compiled Java program that you can upload to Amazon S3. You should compile the program against the version of Hadoop you want to launch, and submit a CUSTOM_JAR step to your Amazon EMR cluster. For more information about how to compile a JAR file, see Build binaries using Amazon EMR.

For more information about building a Hadoop MapReduce application, see the MapReduce Tutorial in the Apache Hadoop documentation.
