Subject Compiler for Hadoop WritableComparable objects (similar to protobufs)
Date Sat, 22 Nov 2008 19:01:03 GMT
Hello All,

I have developed a simple compiler that compiles object specifications into
Hadoop Writable and WritableComparable objects. The purpose of this is to
avoid writing boilerplate code every time you need to have a custom data
type passed around in Hadoop. As input it takes a specification containing a
list of objects and their fields and generates Java classes that implement
Hadoop's Writable or WritableComparable and can serialize and de-serialize
these fields. This compiler is still in its very early stages but I have
found it useful throughout my work with different Hadoop based projects. I
would appreciate any feedback on this!

The project (download, wiki, and source code) is here:
Thank you,
