Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9124) SortedMapWritable violates contract of Map interface for equals() and hashCode()
Date Thu, 20 Dec 2012 21:57:13 GMT

Karthik Kambatla commented on HADOOP-9124:
------------------------------------------

Thanks Suren - the fifth point seems to have already been addressed.

Few more nits (hopefully the last :) ):
# We can be a little conservative on the test timeouts - they shouldn't timeout just because
we run them on a slow/loaded machine. Do you think 200 ms is conservative enough? If not,
we can may be bump it up to 1s.
# The indentation seems to be off on a few lines.

> This issue is similar to HADOOP-7153. It was found when using MRUnit - see MRUNIT-158,
specifically https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MRUNIT-158?focusedCommentId=13501985&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#comment-13501985

> o.a.h.io.SortedMapWritable implements the java.util.Map interface, however it does not
define an implementation of the equals() or hashCode() methods; instead the default implementations
in java.lang.Object are used.
> This violates the contract of the Map interface which defines different behaviour for
equals() and hashCode() than Object does. More information here: http://download.oracle.com/javase/6/docs/api/java/util/Map.html#equals(java.lang.Object)
> The practical consequence is that SortedMapWritables containing equal entries cannot
be compared properly. We were bitten by this when trying to write an MRUnit test for a Mapper
that outputs MapWritables; the MRUnit driver cannot test the equality of the expected and
actual MapWritable objects.
