Subject Re: Probable bug when the vertex data class constructor contains a parameter
Date Mon, 15 Jul 2013 17:01:28 GMT
Hi Jerome,

Vertex value classes need an empty constructor because Giraph needs to instantiate them on
its own, for example when deserializing a request containing vertices read by another worker
during input.
You can still have another constructor with parameters, that you can explicitly call in your
input format.
If you need something more complex, you can define a VertexValueFactory, which has access
to the configuration.

I write a Giraph application where nodes contains data and so the Vertex class used look like
: Vertex<LongWritable, VertexData, NullWritable>

When the VertexData contains a constructor with no arguments, my application works. But when
I try to add an argument to the constructor a kind of bug appear. The compilation succeeds,
but during the execution, Giraph does nothing and seems to wait indefinitely something. No
error occur.
Notice that the first super-step (N°0) is not reached.
Can you shed some light on this?
