Sameer Paranjpye updated HADOOP-2429:
-------------------------------------

    Component/s: mapred

> The lowest level map-reduce APIs should be byte oriented
> --------------------------------------------------------
>
>                 Key: HADOOP-2429
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2429
>             Project: Hadoop
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: mapred
>            Reporter: eric baldeschwieler

> As discussed here:
> https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1986#action_12551237
> The templates, serializers and other complexities that allow map-reduce to use arbitrary
types complicate the design and lead to lots of object creates and other overhead that a byte
oriented design would not suffer.  I believe the lowest level implementation of hadoop map-reduce
should have byte string oriented APIs (for keys and values).  This API would be more performant,
simpler and more easily cross language.
> The existing API could be maintained as a thin layer on top of the leaner API.
