From Mike Spreitzer <mspre...@us.ibm.com>
Subject Writable#write given null DataOutput
Date Sun, 01 May 2011 17:43:34 GMT
I am running Hadoop core 0.20.2, with no additions or modifications.  I 
ran a series of 30 similar jobs, each with about 3/4 of a billion 
(key,value) pairs written by the mapper.  In the midst of the 29th job, I 
got one NullPointerException, from the first line of my value's write 
method.  That line reads
where "void write(DataOutput out)" is the signature of the write method 
and "double x" is a field of the value object whose write method is being 
invoked.  Is this a known bug?
