Hadoop Studio is a map-reduce development environment (IDE) based on Netbeans. It makes it easy to create, understand, and debug map-reduce applications based on Hadoop, without requiring development-time access to a map-reduce cluster. The studio provides a real-time workflow view of a map-reduce job, which displays the individual inputs, outputs, and interactions between the phases of a map-reduce job. The workflow view of a job updates in real time with the developer's code changes. It then generates Java sources and compiles them into a binary jar file, which can be run on a normal Hadoop cluster.
