Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-7323) Add capability to resolve compression codec based on codec name

Add capability to resolve compression codec based on codec name
---------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HADOOP-7323
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7323
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: io
    Affects Versions: 0.21.0
            Reporter: Alejandro Abdelnur
            Assignee: Alejandro Abdelnur
             Fix For: 0.22.0


When setting up a compression codec in an MR job the full class name of the codec must be
used.

To ease usability, compression codecs should be resolved by their codec name (ie 'gzip', 'deflate',
'zlib', 'bzip2') instead their full codec class name.

Besides easy of use for Hadoop users who would use the codec alias instead the full codec
class name, it could simplify how HBase resolves loads the codecs.
