Class CompositeInputFormat<K extends WritableComparable>

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.apache.hadoop.mapred.join.CompositeInputFormat<K>
All Implemented Interfaces:
InputFormat<K,TupleWritable>, ComposableInputFormat<K,TupleWritable>

@InterfaceAudience.Public
@InterfaceStability.Stable
public class CompositeInputFormat<K extends WritableComparable>
extends Object
implements ComposableInputFormat<K,TupleWritable>

An InputFormat capable of performing joins over a set of data sources sorted and partitioned the same way.

See Also:
A user may define new join types by setting the property mapred.join.define.<ident> to a classname. In the expression mapred.join.expr, the identifier will be assumed to be a ComposableRecordReader. mapred.join.keycomparator can be a classname used to compare keys in the join., JoinRecordReader, MultiFilterRecordReader

CompositeInputFormat

public CompositeInputFormat()
Method Detail

setFormat

public void setFormat(JobConf job)
               throws IOException
Interpret a given string as a composite expression. func ::= <ident>([<func>,]*<func>) func ::= tbl(<class>,"<path>") class ::= @see java.lang.Class#forName(java.lang.String) path ::= @see org.apache.hadoop.fs.Path#Path(java.lang.String) Reads expression from the mapred.join.expr property and user-supplied join types from mapred.join.define.<ident> types. Paths supplied to tbl are given as input paths to the InputFormat class listed.

Throws:
IOException

compose(java.lang.String, java.lang.Class, java.lang.String...)

addDefaults

protected void addDefaults()
Adds the default set of identifiers to the parser.


getSplits

public InputSplit[] getSplits(JobConf job,
                              int numSplits)
                       throws IOException
Build a CompositeInputSplit from the child InputFormats by assigning the ith split from each child to the ith composite split.

Specified by:
getSplits in interface InputFormat<K extends WritableComparable,TupleWritable>
Parameters:
job - job configuration.
numSplits - the desired number of splits, a hint.
Returns:
an array of InputSplits for the job.
Throws:
IOException

getRecordReader

public ComposableRecordReader<K,TupleWritable> getRecordReader(InputSplit split,
                                                               JobConf job,
                                                               Reporter reporter)
                                                                                   throws IOException
Construct a CompositeRecordReader for the children of this InputFormat as defined in the init expression. The outermost join need only be composable, not necessarily a composite. Mandating TupleWritable isn't strictly correct.

Specified by:
getRecordReader in interface InputFormat<K extends WritableComparable,TupleWritable>
Specified by:
getRecordReader in interface ComposableInputFormat<K extends WritableComparable,TupleWritable>
Parameters:
split - the InputSplit
job - the job that this split belongs to
Returns:
a RecordReader
Throws:
IOException

compose

public static String compose(Class<? extends InputFormat> inf,
                             String path)
Convenience method for constructing composite formats. Given InputFormat class (inf), path (p) return: tbl(<inf>, <p>)


compose

public static String compose(String op,
                             Class<? extends InputFormat> inf,
                             String... path)
Convenience method for constructing composite formats. Given operation (op), Object class (inf), set of paths (p) return: <op>(tbl(<inf>,<p1>),tbl(<inf>,<p2>),...,tbl(<inf>,<pn>))


compose

public static String compose(String op,
                             Class<? extends InputFormat> inf,
                             Path... path)
Convenience method for constructing composite formats. Given operation (op), Object class (inf), set of paths (p) return: <op>(tbl(<inf>,<p1>),tbl(<inf>,<p2>),...,tbl(<inf>,<pn>))
