1) Yes, You can use word count of specific word in the input file; Please follow the details below:


As an example, the following code can be used which sets "Tree" as the word to be searched:



//Create a new configuration
Configuration conf = new Configuration();
//Set the work to be searched
conf.set("wordToSearch", "Tree");
//create the job
Job job = new Job(conf);



Then, in your mapper/reducer class you can get wordToSearch (i.e., "Tree" in this example) using the following:



//Create a new configuration
Configuration conf = context.getConfiguration();
//retrieve the wordToSearch variable
String wordToSearch = conf.get("wordToSearch");




2) Yes,You can  use wordcount command by using 2 input file and getting the result in 1 output file


As for example you can try the following command:



hadoop jar test.jar /user/in.txt /user/sample.txt /user/out



3) For deleting the the output folder Please run the command given below



hadoop fs -rm -r /user/out
