Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3702) add support for chaining Maps in a single Map and after a Reduce [M*/RM*]
Date Mon, 04 Aug 2008 15:18:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3702?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12619541#action_12619541
] 

Alejandro Abdelnur commented on HADOOP-3702:
--------------------------------------------

*On #1*, the ambiguity for the existing {write(OutputStream)}} and the {{write(DataOutput)}}
introduced by the {{Writable}} interface arises when a {{DataOutputStream}} object is passed
to the {{write(...)}} method, the compiler cannot resolve which one to use. (I've done this
in one of the previous patches, my solution was changing the existing {{write()}} to {{writeXml()}}
but it started breaking in different places in contrib as the method is used outside of core.


*On #2*, it doesn't make much sense to generify the {{Chain*}} classes as they are not directly
exposed to the M/R developer, they are artifacts used to enable chaining, the M/R developer
doesn't code against them. If they would be generified it wold not add any value as at compile
time nothing could be checked for them.

*On #3*, {{ChainOutputCollector}} is lightweight class, see my answer to Chris' regarding
a similar question.

> On the same input, we usually need to run multiple Maps one after the other without no
Reduce. We also have to run multiple Maps after the Reduce.
> If all pre-Reduce Maps are chained together and run as a single Map a significant amount
of Disk I/O will be avoided. 
> Similarly all post-Reduce Maps can be chained together and run in the Reduce phase after
the Reduce.
