Hadoop Map/Reduce sdk or simple .exe

Hi, I was reading a bit about develop map/reduce algorithms with c# but I don't know what is the difference between use the MapperBase and other base classes of this sdk

OR


develop map/reduce algorithms like this ( http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/documentation/articles/hdinsight-hadoop-develop-deploy-streaming-jobs/ )
static void Main(string[] args)
{
    if (args.Length > 0)
    {
        Console.SetIn(new StreamReader(args[0]));
    }

    string line;
    string[] words;

    while ((line = Console.ReadLine()) != null)
    {
        words = line.Split(' ');

        foreach (string word in words)
            Console.WriteLine(word.ToLower());
    }
}
Thanks a lot :)

This SDK provides you base classes to parse and serialize data according to streaming convention and automates remote job submission using WebHCat web service including upload of dependent assemblies, setting defines and other parameters.

Maxluk thanks a lot for your answer but I can't see in which situation this sdk should be used to define map/reduce algorithms in front of this other simple way.

Thanks a lot :)
