Subject [jira] Created: (HADOOP-529) SequenceFile fails task with NullPointerException in code initialization

SequenceFile fails task with NullPointerException in code initialization

                 Key: HADOOP-529
                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-529
             Project: Hadoop
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: mapred
    Affects Versions: 0.6.0
            Reporter: Sanjay Dahiya
            Priority: Blocker
             Fix For: 0.6.1

Sequence file fails in following block of code in 0.6 hadoop ( Sep 13th trunk ) - 
      if (decompress) {
        valInFilter = this.codec.createInputStream(valBuffer);   ---> throws NullPointerException

this.codec is apparently not initialized in 
      if (version >= CUSTOM_COMPRESS_VERSION && this.decompress) {    
        try {
          this.codec = (CompressionCodec)  <---- Init code. 

and is used later. It should probably check for version also before using the this.codec.
