Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAHOUT-1284) DummyRecordWriter's bug with reused Writables
Date Fri, 26 Jul 2013 21:55:49 GMT


Suneel Marthi commented on MAHOUT-1284:

[~maysamyabandeh] Got time to look at this today. There are tests in Mahout-integration that
are using DummyRecordWriter  -  TestConcatenateVectorsJob and RegexMapperTest, and are failing
with this patch. I'll take a stab at this again but could you verify this patch against the
present trunk?

> It is a recommended practice to reuse the Writable objects. DummyRecordWriter, which
is used for testing in Mahout, however keeps the same Writable instance in a map: next time
that the user reuses the Writable object, the internal map of DummyRecordWriter changes as
well. This makes DummyRecordWriter fail for testing the MapReduce jobs that reuse the Writables.
