Subject [jira] Commented: (MAPREDUCE-2208) Flexible CSV text parser InputFormat
Date Sat, 11 Dec 2010 03:09:01 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-2208?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12970370#action_12970370

Lance Norskog commented on MAPREDUCE-2208:
------------------------------------------

Another use case: one Wikipedia format is:
{code}
1: 1664968
2: 3 747213 1664968 1691047 4095634 5535664
{code}
which would read in as:
{code}
1: 1664968
2: 3 
2: 747213 
2: 1664968
etc.
{code}

> CSVTextInputFormat is a configurable CSV parser tuned to most of the csv-style datasets
I've found. The Hadoop samples I've seen all FileInputFormat and Mapper<LongWritable,Text>.
They drop the Longwritable key and parse the Text value as a CSV line. But, they are all custom-coded
for the format.
> CSVTextInputFormat takes any csv-encoded file and rearrange the fields into the format
required by a Mapper. You can drop fields & rearrange them. There is also a random sampling
option to make training/test runs easier.
> Attached are CSVTextInputFormat.java and a unit test for it. Both go into org.apache.hadoop.mapreduce.lib.input
under src/java and test/mapred/src.
> This is compiled against hadoop-0.0.20.
