To make my understanding a little more crisp. All the
values for config parameters available in job.xml are the actual values
used by a job for its execution. There won't be any further changes in
these values at any point further down the lane of execution. (ie no
changes in confing param values after the job.xml is generated). Is my
I waned to make sure of this as in some clusters I'm
working on I don't have acess to the config files *-site.xml . So I just
want to make sure that job.xml is fully dependable and the right reference
for the config values used by my job.
Thanks a lot!....

However, in the example you gave, you'll see 15 (since it's 'final').

I have a query with the job.xml file in map reduce.I set some
value in mapred-site.xml and *marked as final*, say
mapred.num.reduce.tasks=15. When I submit my job I explicitly specified the
number of reducers as -D mapred.num.reduce.tasks=4. Now as expected my my
job should run with 15 reducers as I marked this value as final in my
config file. Now what would be the value that would be available for
mapred.num.reduce.tasks *in job.xml*, 15 or 4 ?
