> It is not possible to use NullWritable as a key in order to suppress key value in output.
> Syndrome exception:
> Caused by: java.lang.IllegalAccessException: Class org.apache.hadoop.io.WritableComparator
can not access a member of class org.apache.hadoop.io.NullWritable with modifiers "private"
> The problem is that NullWritable is a singleton and does not provide public non-parametric
constructor. The following code in WritableComparator causes the exception: return (WritableComparable)keyClass.newInstance();
> Proposed simple solution is to use ReflectionUtils instead (it requires modification
as well).
> This issue is probably related to HADOOP-2922
