Subject [jira] Updated: (HADOOP-7021) MapWritable NullPointerException
Date Tue, 21 Dec 2010 22:18:01 GMT

tom pierce updated HADOOP-7021:
-------------------------------

    Attachment: HADOOP-7021.patch

I tidied the new test a bit, putting it into the current TestMapWritable class and using UTF8
as the "foreign class" instead of a one-off example Writable.

Hopefully Hudson will find this patch more digestible; I followed the submission guidelines
except for building the tar, which proved cumbersome on CentOS.

> We have encountered a NullPointerException when we use MapWritable with custom Writable
objects.
> The root cause is the counter newClasses in AbstractMapWritable is allowed to get out
of sync with the id to class mapping tables when addToMap(Class) is called.  We have a patch
to AbstractMapWritable.addToMap(Class) that handles the case when newClasses gets out of sync
with the id to class mapping tables and adds a serialization optimization to minimize the
number of class names to write out per MapWritable object.
