Thanks a lot Aaron,

I was looking into it, I just hope, it will be compliant with 0.20.2 ...

Otherwise, I am stuck :(

You might want to check out MRUnit. It's a unit test harness that contains
mock objects for the context & other associated classes, and works with

It's included in the (unreleased) Hadoop 0.21, as well as Cloudera's
Distribution for Hadoop. See

Hello to all,
first of all many thanks for this great piece of software you are all
contributing to :)

I am actually creating a program in Hadoop MapReduce, but I intend to
massively use JUnit Tests to validate my code.

To test a Mapper, I mock a Mapper.Context object and run the Mapper.map
function with it, but inside my Mapper.map function, I am using Counters
to maintain internal statistics. The update of those counters make the test
fails with a null pointer (JavaNullPointerException).
There is an issue "Counters" of variable visibility from my test ...

Do you have any idea how to mock/validate/overcome this issue ?

Thanks a lots
Best Regards
Olivier Varene

: Code :

private static enum Counters {NBLINES};
private static IntWritable one = new IntWritable(1);
private static LongWritable oneL = new LongWritable(1);

// Mapper
* outputs 1 for each line encountered
public static class LCMapper extends
Mapper<LongWritable, Text, IntWritable, LongWritable>
private final static IntWritable one = new IntWritable(1);
private final static LongWritable oneL = new LongWritable(1);
* for each line encountered outputs 1 for the key 1
public void map(LongWritable p_key, Text p_inputs, Context p_context)
throws IOException, InterruptedException
p_context.write(one,oneL); } // end map
} // end Mapper

: Test :

public void testLCMapper() throws IOException, InterruptedException
{ LCMapper mapper = new LCMapper();
Text value = new Text("ligneA\nlignB\n");
// mock the map job execution context
Context context = mock(Context.class);
try {
mapper.map(null, value, context);
} catch (NullPointerException e)
// exception raised by context.getCounter(...) null pointer
// HOW TO MOCK ???
// Counter is a static enum from the englobing class ...
// issue with variable visibility (from map function) in this test
// verify that the Mapper issued (one,oneL) pair
} // end testLCMapper
