I need to showcase how R and Hadoop can work together using ORCH. I have found a sample code from the ORACLE website as follows
dfs <- hdfs.attach("ontime_DB")

res <- hadoop.run(
        mapper = function(key, value) {
          if (key == 'SFO' & !is.na(x$ARRDELAY)) {
            keyval(key, value)
          else {
         reducer = function(key, values) {
            for (x in values) {
                sumAD <- sumAD + x$ARRDELAY
                count <- count + 1
                  res <- sumAD / count
                  keyval(key, res)


> hdfs.get(res)
   key     val1
1  SFO   17.44828

I could not understand in this code where is ORCH acting as a connector. Even if you can explain how ORCH acts as a connector to Hadoop with another example it would also be helpful.
