Step 4: The “ScoreTableReducer”.

Step 5: Finally, the class with the main method to run as a stand-alone class. Make use of the “TableMapReduceUtil” to map to HBase tables.

Step 6: Run the above class and then go to “Hbase shell” command to see if the “max mark” has been added to the table “marks-summary“.
