Subject help with rewriting hadoop java code for new API: RecordReader getPos()
Date Wed, 27 Oct 2010 09:37:38 GMT
[Apologies for cross-posting]

HI all,
I am rewriting a hadoop java code for the new (0.20.2) API- the code
was originally written for versions <= 0.19.

1. What is the equivalent of getPos() method [0] of RecordReader ?

I read that in 0.20, the getPos() methos is no longer there [1], but what
am I supposed to replace it with?

For example, in a map function, I have (RecordReader<IntWritable,
CustomInput> input, Context context) and in the function body, I have:
long pos = -1;
pos = input.getPos();
while(input.next(key, value)){
//some code here

and I get the error: The method getPos() is undefined for the type

Any pointers or help will be highly appreciated.
