I am very new for Hbase and Map Reduce API. I am very confused with Map Reduce concepts. I need to Load text file into Hbase table using MAPReduce API. I googled some Examples but in that  I can find MAPPER () not reducer method. I am confused with when to use mapper and when to use Reducer (). I am thinking in the way like
1) TO write data to a Hbase we use mapper
2) TO read data from HBASE we use mapper and reducer(). please can any one clear me with detail explanation.
3) I am trying to load data from text file  into HBASE table. i am using HAdoop in linux machine. I googled and tried some code but i dont know, how to load the text file and read in HBASE mapreduce API.
