Subject Re: How to convert sequence file into normal text file
Date Wed, 01 Feb 2012 11:13:16 GMT

The utility "hadoop fs -text <seqfile>", documented at
can read SequenceFiles and print their string representations out.
Will this be of any help?

Otherwise, you want to use a SequenceFile.Reader over your given file
and after reading each record out, store them in their text
representation with a regular file writer. An even easier way may be
an identity job with sequence-file input format and text output
