> The StreamUtil::goodClassOrNull method assumes user-provided classes have package names
and if not, they are part of the Hadoop Streaming package. For example, using custom InputFormat
or OutputFormat classes without package names will fail with a ClassNotFound exception which
is not indicative given the classes are provided in the libjars option. Admittedly, most Java
packages should have a package name so this should rarely come up.
> Possible resolution options:
> 1) modify the error message to include the actual classname that was attempted in the
goodClassOrNull method
> 2) call the Configuration::getClassByName method first and if class not found check for
default package name and try the call again
> {code}
>     public static Class goodClassOrNull(Configuration conf, String className, String
defaultPackage) {
>         Class clazz = null;
>         try {
>             clazz = conf.getClassByName(className);
>         } catch (ClassNotFoundException cnf) {
>         }
>         if (clazz == null) {
>             if (className.indexOf('.') == -1 && defaultPackage != null) {
>                 className = defaultPackage + "." + className;
>                 try {
>                     clazz = conf.getClassByName(className);
>                 } catch (ClassNotFoundException cnf) {
>                 }
>             }
>         }
>         return clazz;
>     }
> {code}
