Subject Problems reading Parquet input from HDFS
Date Mon, 24 Apr 2017 16:19:04 GMT

I am trying to read Parquet files from HDFS and having problems. I use Avro for schema. Here
is a basic example:

public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
    ExecutionEnvironment env = ExecutionEnvironment.getExecutionEnvironment();

    Job job = Job.getInstance();
    HadoopInputFormat<Void, Customer> hif = new HadoopInputFormat<>(new AvroParquetInputFormat(),
        Customer.class, job);
    FileInputFormat.addInputPath((JobConf) job.getConfiguration(), new org.apache.hadoop.fs.Path(
    Schema projection = Schema.createRecord(Customer.class.getSimpleName(), null, null, false);
    List<Schema.Field> fields = Arrays.asList(
        new Schema.Field("c_custkey", Schema.create(Schema.Type.INT), null, (Object) null)
    AvroParquetInputFormat.setRequestedProjection(job, projection);

    DataSet<Tuple2<Void, Customer>> dataset = env.createInput(hif);
If I submit this to the job manager I get the following stack trace:

java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: org.apache.avro.Schema$Field.<init>(Ljava/lang/String;Lorg/apache/avro/Schema;Ljava/lang/String;Ljava/lang/Object;)V
	at misc.Misc.main(Misc.java:29)

The problem is that I use the parquet-avro dependency (which provides AvroParquetInputFormat)
in version 1.9.0 which relies on the avro dependency 1.8.0. The flink-core itself relies on
the avro dependency in version 1.7.7. Jfyi the dependency tree looks like this:

[INFO] --- maven-dependency-plugin:2.8:tree (default-cli) @ flink-experiments ---
[INFO] +- org.apache.flink:flink-java:jar:1.2.0:compile
[INFO] |  +- org.apache.flink:flink-core:jar:1.2.0:compile
[INFO] |  |  \- (org.apache.avro:avro:jar:1.7.7:compile - omitted for conflict with 1.8.0)
[INFO] |  \- org.apache.flink:flink-shaded-hadoop2:jar:1.2.0:compile
[INFO] |     \- (org.apache.avro:avro:jar:1.7.7:compile - omitted for duplicate)
[INFO] \- org.apache.parquet:parquet-avro:jar:1.9.0:compile
[INFO]    \- org.apache.avro:avro:jar:1.8.0:compile

Fixing the above NoSuchMethodError just leads to further problems. Downgrading parquet-avro
to an older version creates other conflicts as there is no version that uses avro 1.7.7 like
Flink does.

Is there a way around this or can you point me to another approach to read Parquet data from
HDFS? How do you normally go about this?

Thanks for your help,
