How to write a custom input format and record reader to read multiple lines of text from files

                 Key: MAPREDUCE-1255
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1255
             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
          Issue Type: Task
    Affects Versions: 0.20.1
         Environment: Ubuntu, 32 bit system. Apache hadoop 0.20.1
            Reporter: Kunal Gupta
            Priority: Minor

Can someone explain how to override the "FileInputFormat" and "RecordReader" in order to be
able to read multiple lines of text from input files in a single map task?

Here the key will be the offset of the first line of text and value will be the N lines of

I have overridden the class FileInputFormat:

public class MultiLineFileInputFormat
	extends FileInputFormat<LongWritable, Text>{

and implemented the abstract method:

public RecordReader createRecordReader(InputSplit split,
                TaskAttemptContext context)
         throws IOException, InterruptedException {...}

I have also overridden the recordreader class:

public class MultiLineFileRecordReader extends RecordReader<LongWritable, Text>

and in the job configuration, specified this new InputFormat class:


When I  run this new map/reduce program, i get the following java error:
