Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ClassNotFoundException

Rising Star

I am trying to run a MapReduce job using(using new API) on Hadoop 2.7.1 using command line.

I have followed the below steps.

javac -cp `hadoop classpath`MaxTemperatureWithCompression.java -d /Users/gangadharkadam/hadoopdata/build
jar -cvf MaxTemperatureWithCompression.jar /Users/gangadharkadam/hadoopdata/build
hadoop jar MaxTemperatureWithCompression.jar org.myorg.MaxTemperatureWithCompression user/ncdc/input /user/ncdc/output

No error in compiling and creating a jar file. But on execution I am gettign the folowing error

}

I checked jar file and the folder structure org/myorg/MaxTemperatureWithCompression.class is present. What could be the reason for this error. Any help in resolving this is highly apprciated. Thanks.

Re: Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ClassNotFoundException

Hi @Gangadhar Kadam,

You've got eveything almost right. When you build the jar, you need to move into the build directory and then trigger the jar -cvzf command to avoid having the "build part of the directory hierachy put into the JAR. So, the following should work:

javac -cp `hadoop classpath`MaxTemperatureWithCompression.java -d /Users/gangadharkadam/hadoopdata/build

cd /Users/gangadharkadam/hadoopdata/build 

jar -cvf MaxTemperatureWithCompression.jar . 

hadoop jar MaxTemperatureWithCompression.jar org.myorg.MaxTemperatureWithCompression user/ncdc/input /user/ncdc/output

Try it out and compare the results of jar -tf MaxTemperatureWithCompression.jar. You should see:

[root@sandbox build]# jar -tf MaxTemperatureWithCompression.jar
META-INF/
META-INF/MANIFEST.MF
org/
org/myorg/
org/myorg/MaxTemperatureWithCompression.class
org/myorg/MaxTemperatureWithCompression$Map.class
org/myorg/MaxTemperatureWithCompression$Reduce.class

Whereas currently your steps result in:

[root@sandbox test]# jar -tf MaxTemperatureWithCompression.jar
META-INF/
META-INF/MANIFEST.MF
build/org/
build/org/myorg/
build/org/myorg/MaxTemperatureWithCompression.class
build/org/myorg/MaxTemperatureWithCompression$Map.class
build/org/myorg/MaxTemperatureWithCompression$Reduce.class

This works for me on my HDP 2.3 Sandbox.
