Doug Cutting commented on HADOOP-957:
-------------------------------------

Could this be done as a subclass of SequenceFileOutputFormat, RecordOutputFormat?

> When creating a map/reduce job with SequenceFileFormat, 
> the user would like to add some metada to the output files automatically. 
> In particular, if the output value class was a JuteRecord class generated from a Jute
IDL, 
> we would like to add JUTE_IDL/IDL_STRING as a attribute/value pair of the metadata.
> This way, the output files will be self describing: 
> When an application that tries to use the files may not have the value class with it.

> But the application can use Jute tool to generate the classes on demand.
> Or better yet, the SequenceFile record reader may be able to do that automatically.
