>                 Key: MAPREDUCE-612
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-612
>             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: contrib/streaming
>            Reporter: Joydeep Sen Sarma
>            Priority: Minor
> in 15.3 - streaming defaults to TextInputFormat (without -inputformat option).
> this is great in case the PipeMapper is used. but in many cases people want to do an
IdentityMapper - and it fails with the IdentityMapper:
> a) the map output key type becomes LongWritable (but hadoop has already defaulted to
expect Text)
> b) the map output key is the Line number - and intuitively - this is not what the user
expects (almost no one wants to use the line number as the map key).
> if we could simply default to KeyValueTextInputFormat with IdentityMapper - that would
resolve both of these problems. This would change default behavior though - so a little leery
> using '-mapper cat' is the common workaround - but it just seems like a needless waste
of resources ..
