Subject [jira] Commented: (MAPREDUCE-1126) shuffle should use serialization to get comparator
Date Fri, 15 Jan 2010 23:56:54 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1126?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12801012#action_12801012
] 

Owen O'Malley commented on MAPREDUCE-1126:
------------------------------------------

I reverted this until we can discuss the API changes. In particular, the framework can not
depend on the stuff in mapreduce/lib. *sigh* Also deprecating the {get,set}MapOutput{Key,Value}Class
methods seems unnecessary.

Clearly, getting Avro to flow through the shuffle is important, but the changes to the API
were poorly considered.

> Currently the key comparator is defined as a Java class.  Instead we should use the Serialization
API to create key comparators.  This would permit, e.g., Avro-based comparators to be used,
permitting efficient sorting of complex data types without having to write a RawComparator
in Java.
