Controlling Hadoop Jobs Using Oozie


This Apache Oozie course teaches you how to control Hadoop jobs on your Big Data projects. Even better, the materials and software provided are all free.

About this Course

This course gives an overview of Oozie and how it is able to control Hadoop jobs. It begins with looking at the components required to code a workflow as well as optional components such as case statements, forks, and joins. That is followed by using the Oozie coordinator in order to schedule a workflow.

One of the things that the student will quickly notice is that workflows are coded using XML which tends to get verbose. The last lesson of this course shows a graphical workflow editor tool designed to simplify the work in generating a workflow.
