Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3380) need comparators in serializer framework

Chris K Wensel commented on HADOOP-3380:
----------------------------------------

Ok, I think I get the gist of the new Serialization stuff. 

If I'm correct, I only would need RawComparator to be Configurable. And I can continue to
override the comparator via JobConf. I don't see that I would need to implement Serialization,
since Writable is suitable...

> The new serialization framework permits Hadoop to incorporate different serialization
systems, including Hadoop's Writable, Thrift, Java Serialization, etc.  It provides a generic,
extensible means (SerializationFactory) to create serializers and deserializers for arbitrary
Java classes.  However it does not include a generic means to create comparators for these
classes.  Comparators are required for MapReduce keys and many other computations.  Thus we
should enhance the serialization framwork to provide comparators too.
