recursion in Hadoop

New Contributor

I would like to know how HaLoop replace the recursive call of a function. I really need to implement a function in a big data environment and that function is recursive and after some research i found out that recursive call does not work well with hadoop. Any help will be very apreciated.

Recursion in what? There is no reason you can't write a recursive function in MapReduce or Spark programming. I've personally done it.

What matters is what data you have in the current task / executor that can be processed recursively.
