Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6685) Change the generic serialization framework API to use serialization-specific bytes instead of Map<String,String> for configuration
Date Fri, 12 Nov 2010 19:19:19 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6685?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12931498#action_12931498

Hong Tang commented on HADOOP-6685:
-----------------------------------

bq. Could you please explain the motivation for extending these file formats to support all
of these serialization systems? 

Being able to support so many different serialization framework in itself is a good exercise
to ensure that the API is carefully designed to be future proof.

> Currently, the generic serialization framework uses Map<String,String> for the
serialization specific configuration. Since this data is really internal to the specific serialization,
I think we should change it to be an opaque binary blob. This will simplify the interface
for defining specific serializations for different contexts (MAPREDUCE-1462). It will also
move us toward having serialized objects for Mappers, Reducers, etc (MAPREDUCE-1183).
