Subject reducer not runnig
Date Thu, 09 Feb 2012 01:44:13 GMT

I am pretty new to Avro, and try to write an map-reduce job to read 

text format and write to Avro. it is a simple word count I write based 

on the example, but the reducer seems not running as I wrote. all the output
is directly from map actually. basically when I check the log, the system.out
in the reducer did not show up even in the log.

here the code, can someone give a help?
