Subject Re: How can I copy a local disk file, and output it as bytesWritable
Date Tue, 16 Mar 2010 19:31:30 GMT
You can use multiple methods to create input/output streams.  One is to just
copy the content of the file into a buffer.  You can use Hadoop's IOUtils

    BytesWritable value = new BytesWritable();
    FileInputStream istream = new FileInputStream(file);
    byte[] contents = new byte[(int) file.length()];
    try {
      IOUtils.readFully(istream, contents, 0, contents.length);
      value.set(contents, 0, contents.length);
    } catch(Exception e) {
    } finally {
      contents = null;
