Subject Having trouble accessing MapFiles in the DistributedCache
Date Thu, 25 Dec 2008 05:10:21 GMT
To all,

Version:  hadoop-

I created a MapFile on a local node.

I  put the files into the HDFS using the following commands:

$ bin/hadoop fs -copyFromLocal /tmp/ur/data    /2008-12-19/url/data
$ bin/hadoop fs -copyFromLocal /tmp/ur/index  /2008-12-19/url/index

and placed them in the DistributedCache using the following calls in  
the JobConf class:

DistributedCache.addCacheFile(new URI("/2008-12-19/url/data"), conf);
DistributedCache.addCacheFile(new URI("/2008-12-19/url/index"), conf);

What I cannot figure out how to do is actually access the MapFile now  
within my Map code.  I tried the following but I am getting file not  
found errors when I try to run the job.

private FileSystem              fs;
private MapFile.Reader     myReader;
private Path[]                        localFiles;


  public void configure(JobConf conf)
         String[] s = conf.getStrings("map.input.file");
         m_sFileName = s[0];

             localFiles = DistributedCache.getLocalCacheFiles(conf);

             for (Path localFile : localFiles)
                 String sFileName = localFile.getName();

                 if (sFileName.equalsIgnoreCase("data"))
                     System.out.println("Full Path: " +  
                     System.out.println("Parent: " +  

                     fs = FileSystem.get(localFile.toUri(), conf);
                     myReader = new MapFile.Reader(fs,  
localFile.getParent().toString(), conf);
         catch (IOException e)
             // TODO Auto-generated catch block

The following exception is thrown and I cannot figure out why it is  
adding the extra data element at the end of the path.  The data is  
actually at

The files do exist but I don't understand why they were placed in  
their own directories.  I would have expected both files to exist at / 
2008-12-19/url/ not /2008-12-19/url/data/ and /2008-12-19/url/index/

I know I must be doing something really stupid here as I am sure this  
has been done by lots of folks prior to my feeble attempt.  I did a  
google search but really could not come up with any examples of using  
a MapFile on the DistributedCache.
