I am trying to read RCFiles in the mapper phase. I was successful in achieving this using old mapred API's.
import org.apache.hadoop.mapred.JobConf;JobConf conf = new JobConf(config, MRDriver.class);
Refactored the code to use new mapreduce API's as below,
import org.apache.hadoop.mapreduce.Job;Job job = new Job(config, "Triplets join");
i'm getting compilation issues in the below line :
The method setInputFormatClass(Class<? extends InputFormat>) in the type Job is not applicable for the arguments (Class<RCFileInputFormat>)
Also, RCFileInputFormat.setInputPaths(JobConf conf, String commaSeparatedPaths) doesn't seem to accept Job as argument. Instead, it uses deprecated JobConf.
Why am I facing compilation issues when trying to use new API's. RCFileInputFormat is not implemented using new mapreduce API's ?? I need some suggestions on how to proceed with this.
