Subject [jira] [Created] (GIRAPH-227) ArrayWritables and their sub-classes don't play well with
Date Sat, 30 Jun 2012 20:28:42 GMT
Eli Reisman created GIRAPH-227:

             Summary: ArrayWritables and their sub-classes don't play well with
                 Key: GIRAPH-227
             Project: Giraph
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: graph, test
    Affects Versions: 0.2.0
            Reporter: Eli Reisman
             Fix For: 0.2.0

Twice now (GIRAPH-157 and GIRAPH-217) I have attempted to implement vertices that use ArrayWritables
(including subclassing as described in Hadoop docs, and the generic String[] version with
its own constructor). Although the code will compile and compute() can successfully be unit
tested, a real run breaks the code. Thanks to Sean Choi (also struggling with this) for helping
me figure out I'm not crazy, this is a real issue.

A guick grep in Giraph reveals no one else is using them yet, so maybe thats why this has
gotten past us thus far. I am happy to take a hard look at GiraphJob (etc) and see if i can
figure a workaround, but this one might be above my pay grade. Help!

Incidently, I used Sean's solution in 157 to simple output final data tuples as Text vertex
values, but this is wasteful and not good for bulk data processing. Could be something about
our output formats, but between us we have attempted several with no dice. If I have just
been a newbie and missed something, please let me know, otherwise I'm going to change GIRAPH-217
to use Text output as well, and fix it again later when this issue is resolved.

Thanks for your help!
