Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3566) Create an InputFormat for reading lines of text as Java Strings
Date Fri, 19 Sep 2008 01:28:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3566?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12632482#action_12632482
] 

Pete Wyckoff commented on HADOOP-3566:
--------------------------------------

If we had a LineReader Serialization implementation (HADOOP-4203)  that returns Strings that
could be plugged into a flat file input format (HADOOP-4065), you would have this inputformat,
albeit with the important problem of the signature being <LongWritable, String>. 

Could we not modify 4065 to accommodate this use case or am i missing something?

> Such a StringInputFormat would be like TextInputFormat but with input types of Long and
String, rather than LongWritable and Text. This would allow users to write MapReduce programs
that used only Java native types (i.e. no Writables).
> This is currently not possible to write without changes to Hadoop due to a limitation
in the RecordReader interface explained here: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3413?focusedCommentId=12597935#action_12597935
