Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-1558) changes to OutputFormat to work on temporary directory to enable re-running crashed jobs (Issue: 1121)
Date Sun, 19 Aug 2007 05:57:30 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1558?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12520932
] 

Alejandro Abdelnur commented on HADOOP-1558:
--------------------------------------------

I'm fine with it, but this solution means the JT has to (potentially) execute client code
and I thought that that is a no no.

This would be the case when the OutputFormat implementation is custom.

IMO using a custom OutputFormat is a much more likely scenario than using a different data
store (that is what the OutputHandler does).

> Add  OutputFormat methods like:
> /** Called to initialize output for this job. */
> void initialize(JobConf job) throws IOException;
> /** Called to finalize output for this job. */
> void commit(JobConf job) throws IOException;
> In the base implemenation for FileSystem output, initialize() might then create a temporary
directory for the job, removing any that already exists, and commit could rename the temporary
output directory to the final name. 
> The existing checkOutputSpecs() would continue to throw an exception if the final output
already exists.
