What I am looking for is a way to store my data in xml using zope and run map/reduce (or something very much like it) on live data.
1. Should I try to see if localFS will read/write to xml files on the hadoop filesystem http://hadoop.apache.org/core/docs/current/hdfs_design.html 2. or should I look for python equivalents to hadoop? 3. or should I just use java for this area of my application? Which approach (or something else) would you take? Anybody?
