class org.apache.hadoop.io.MapWritable is not class org.apache.hadoop.io.IntWritable

New Contributor
I have many records store in my mongodb. Just looks like this:
{
 "_id": xxxx,
  "url":"www.myurl.com/xxxxx",
  "summary":"THIS IS DOCUMENT IN THE $url"
}    

What I want the result just looks like this:

{
    "_id": word_in_summary,
    "results":[
        { 
            "url": "the corresponding url that word appears in summary",
            "count": "the total count of the word in the summary"
        },
        { .... }
     ]
}

for example:

{
    "_id" : ObjectId("574ec02d8bee4f03d9174c11"),
    "url" : "www.example_1.com/xxxx",
    "summary" : "hello good, good"
}

{
    "_id" : ObjectId("574ec02d8bee4f03d9174c12"),
    "url" : "www.example_2.com/xxxx",
    "summary" : "good"
}

So, the result is:

{
    "_id": "hello",
    "results":[
        "url": "www.example_1.com/xxxx",
        "count": 1
     ]
}

{
    "_id": "good",
    "results":[
        {
            "url": "www.example_1.com/xxxx",
            "count": 2
        },
        {
             "url": "www.example_2.com/xxxx",
             "count": 1
        }
     ]
}

I am a newbie in Java and Hadoop. My code to process the data is:

import java.util.*; 
import java.io.*;
import org.bson.*;
import com.mongodb.hadoop.MongoInputFormat;
import com.mongodb.hadoop.MongoOutputFormat;

import org.apache.hadoop.conf.Configuration;
import org.apache.hadoop.io.*;
import org.apache.hadoop.mapreduce.*;

public class WordCount {
    public static class TokenizerMapper extends Mapper<Object, BSONObject, Text, IntWritable> {
    	private final static IntWritable one = new IntWritable(1);
    	private Text word = new Text();
    	public void map(Object key, BSONObject value, Context context ) 
    			throws IOException, InterruptedException {
    		String url = value.get("url").toString();
    		StringTokenizer itr = new StringTokenizer(value.get("summary").toString().replaceAll(",", " "));
    		while (itr.hasMoreTokens()) {
    			word.set(itr.nextToken() + " " + url);
    			context.write(word, one);
    		}
    	}
    }
    public static class IntSumReducer extends Reducer<Text, IntWritable, Text, MapWritable> {
    	private MapWritable result = new MapWritable();
    	public void reduce(Text key, Iterable<IntWritable> values, Context context)
    		throws IOException, InterruptedException {
    		int sum = 0;
    		String str[] = key.toString().split(" ");
    		Text mykey= new Text(str[0]);
    		Text myurl = new Text(str[1]);
    		for (IntWritable val : values) {
    			sum += val.get();
    		}
    		System.out.println("sum : " + sum);
    		result.put(myurl, new IntWritable(sum));
    		context.write(mykey, result);
    	}
    }

    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
    	Configuration conf = new Configuration();
    	conf.set( "mongo.input.uri" , "mongodb://localhost/testmr.stackin" );
    	conf.set( "mongo.output.uri" , "mongodb://localhost/testmr.stackout" );
    	@SuppressWarnings("deprecation")
		Job job = new Job(conf, "word count");
    	job.setJarByClass(WordCount.class);
    	job.setMapperClass(TokenizerMapper.class);
    	job.setCombinerClass(IntSumReducer.class);
    	job.setReducerClass(IntSumReducer.class);
    	job.setOutputKeyClass(Text.class);
    	job.setOutputValueClass(IntWritable.class);
    	job.setInputFormatClass( MongoInputFormat.class );
    	job.setOutputFormatClass( MongoOutputFormat.class );
    	System.exit(job.waitForCompletion(true) ? 0 : 1);
    }
}

The errors:

Re: class org.apache.hadoop.io.MapWritable is not class org.apache.hadoop.io.IntWritable

@Alexander Yau, the error shown here is caused by a mismatch between the value class configured for the job at job submission time and what the reducer is attempting to write for the job output. The exception text indicates it expects IntWritable, but instead received an instance of MapWritable.

java.io.IOException: wrong value class: class org.apache.hadoop.io.MapWritable is not class org.apache.hadoop.io.IntWritable

At job submission time, the output class is set to IntWritable.

job.setOutputValueClass(IntWritable.class);

However, the reducer class parameterizes the output value type to MapWritable.

    public static class IntSumReducer extends Reducer<Text, IntWritable, Text, MapWritable> {

Likewise, the reducer logic writes a MapWritable instance to the context.

   private MapWritable result = new MapWritable();
        ...
    result.put(myurl, new IntWritable(sum));
    context.write(mykey, result);

To fix this error, you'll need to set up the job submission and the reducer to use the same output value class. Judging from the description you gave for what you're trying to achieve with this job, it sounds like you want MapWritable for the outputs. Therefore, I recommend testing again with the line of code from the job submission changed to this:

     job.setOutputValueClass(MapWritable.class);
