These are two question let me answer the first one configuration of Apache Hadoop (source, please comment on second part i.e. Programming Paradigm and be specific what is your question so that it can be answered.

Unpack the downloaded Hadoop distribution. In the distribution, edit the file conf/ to define at least JAVA_HOME to be the root of your Java installation.

Try the following command:
$ bin/hadoop
This will display the usage documentation for the hadoop script.

Now you are ready to start your Hadoop cluster in one of the three supported modes:

Local (Standalone) Mode
Pseudo-Distributed Mode
Fully-Distributed Mode

Standalone Operation
By default, Hadoop is configured to run in a non-distributed mode, as a single Java process. This is useful for debugging.

The following example copies the unpacked conf directory to use as input and then finds and displays every match of the given regular expression. Output is written to the given output directory.
$ mkdir input
$ cp conf/*.xml input
$ bin/hadoop jar hadoop-examples-*.jar grep input output 'dfs[a-z.]+'
$ cat output/*

Pseudo-Distributed Operation
Hadoop can also be run on a single-node in a pseudo-distributed mode where each Hadoop daemon runs in a separate Java process.

Use the following:







Setup passphraseless ssh
Now check that you can ssh to the localhost without a passphrase:
$ ssh localhost

If you cannot ssh to localhost without a passphrase, execute the following commands:
$ ssh-keygen -t dsa -P '' -f ~/.ssh/id_dsa
$ cat ~/.ssh/ >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys

Format a new distributed-filesystem:
$ bin/hadoop namenode -format

Start the hadoop daemons:
$ bin/

The hadoop daemon log output is written to the ${HADOOP_LOG_DIR} directory (defaults to ${HADOOP_HOME}/logs).

Browse the web interface for the NameNode and the JobTracker; by default they are available at:

NameNode - http://localhost:50070/
JobTracker - http://localhost:50030/
Copy the input files into the distributed filesystem:
$ bin/hadoop fs -put conf input

Run some of the examples provided:
$ bin/hadoop jar hadoop-examples-*.jar grep input output 'dfs[a-z.]+'

Examine the output files:

Copy the output files from the distributed filesystem to the local filesytem and examine them:
$ bin/hadoop fs -get output output
$ cat output/*


View the output files on the distributed filesystem:
$ bin/hadoop fs -cat output/*

When you're done, stop the daemons with:
$ bin/

To be specific with Programming Paradigm I mean how to do programming on Hadoop, which language is used ? Is there any particular reference for beginners ?

Let we change the default block size to 32 MB and replication factor to 1. Let Hadoop cluster consists of 4 DNs. Let input data size is 192 MB. Now I want to place data on DNs as following. DN1 and DN2 contain 2 blocks (32+32 = 64 MB) each and DN3 and DN4 contain 1 block (32 MB) each. Can it be possible? How to accomplish it?

I declared a variable and incremented/modified it inside Mapper class. Now I need to use the modified value of that variable in Driver class. I declared a static variable inside Mapper class and its modified value works in Driver class when I run the code in Eclipse IDE. But after creating that code as a runable jar from Eclipse and run jar file as “$ hadoop jar filename.jar input output” modified value does not reflect (value is 0) in Driver class.
