> The issue that HBASE-1626 tried to fix is that we can hand in Put or Delete instances
to the TableOutputFormat. So the explicit Put reference was changed to Writable in the process.
But that does not work as expected:

> So it does not work using a Writable as the MapOutputValueClass for the job and then
hand in a Put or Delete! The test case TestMapReduce did not pick this up as it has this line
in it
> {code}
>       TableMapReduceUtil.initTableMapperJob(
>         Bytes.toString(table.getTableName()), scan,
>         ProcessContentsMapper.class, ImmutableBytesWritable.class, 
>         Put.class, job);{code}
> which sets the value class to Put
> {code}if (outputValueClass != null) job.setMapOutputValueClass(outputValueClass);{code}
> To fix this (for now) one can set the class to Put the same way or explicitly in their
> {code}job.setMapOutputValueClass(Put.class);{code}
> But the whole idea only seems feasable if a) the Hadoop class is amended to use "instanceof"
instead (lodge Hadoop MapRed JIRA issue?) or b) we have a combined class that represent a
Put *and* a Delete - which seems somewhat wrong, but doable. It would only really find use
in that context and would require the user to make use of it when calling context.write().
This is making things not easier to learn.
> Suggestions?
