Subject [jira] Created: (HADOOP-433) Better access to the RecordReader
Date Tue, 08 Aug 2006 21:24:13 GMT
Better access to the RecordReader

                 Key: HADOOP-433
                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-433
             Project: Hadoop
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: mapred
    Affects Versions: 0.5.0
            Reporter: Benjamin Reed
            Priority: Minor

The record reader has access to the FileSplit which can in turn have information that is useful
to the Mapper. For example, Map processing may vary according to file name or attributes associated
with a file. Unfortunately, even using a MapRunner you only have access to the progress wrapper
of the RecordReader. To get access to the real record reader I had to use a thread local variable
which I set in RecordReader.getNext(). It would be much nicer if you could get a reference
to the real RecordReader from the RecordReader passed to MapRunner.
