Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3787) Add serialization for Thrift
Date Wed, 03 Sep 2008 22:49:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3787?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12628188#action_12628188

Joydeep Sen Sarma commented on HADOOP-3787:

@Tom - the other thing is that SequenceFiles are self-describing - so the createKey()/Value()
methods are trivial. For flat binary files - the record that's serialized is not implicit
in the file and has to come from configuration outside. 

In Hive we have configuration per inputpath (or path-prefix really) that indicates the same
information that's embedded inside sequencefile header. i am not sure whether we want to have
this kind of information as part of hadoop-core.

will open a separate jira for binary flat files (opening corresponding one for Hive as well
since this is one of the first requests we got)

> Thrift (http://incubator.apache.org/thrift/) is cross-language serialization and RPC
framework. This issue is to write a ThriftSerialization to support using Thrift types in MapReduce
programs, including an example program. This should probably go into contrib.
