I am interested in understanding how the language bindings
work in Hadoop and how I might contribute some. As Hadoop is built in Java, Java is the natural language to interface to it. However, I am interested in interfacing from other languages. My Hadoop back-end installation would remain the same, but the code I write that uses it would be built in a non-Java language. If you have any information on how I might approach this, please let me know.
Can anyone give me
some initial help on this, where to look in the codebase and some
pointers to any documents?
