I have created a very small mapfile for testing purposes. When i use this file as the input file for a hadoop job (with a SequenceFileInputFormat), i get a very strange LongWritable value written in, which i did not write in the mapfile. I even had to go so far to change my Mapper from <Text, Text..> to <Text, Writable, ...> to accommodate this. Im using hadoop 0.20.0 and HadoopTestCase (Local_MR, Local_FS, 1, 1). I have not tested this in a production env fwiw. Anywone have ideas whats going on? All replies appreciated!

Mapfile creation,

MapFile.Writer w = new MapFile.Writer(tool.getConfiguration().getJobConf(), getFileSystem(), inputDir + "/part-00000", Text.class, Text.class);
Text t;
t = new Text("apple");
w.append(t, new Text("orange"));
t = new Text("bar");
w.append(t, new Text("foo"));
t = new Text("foo");

Beginning of mapper class,

public class MapSortJoinMapper implements Mapper<Text, Writable, Text, Text> {

public void map(Text key, Writable value, OutputCollector<Text, Text> textTextOutputCollector, Reporter reporter) throws IOException {
try {
System.out.println(key + ":" + key.getClass());
System.out.println(value + ":" + value.getClass());

Output of mapper class,

apple:class org.apache.hadoop.io.Text
orange:class org.apache.hadoop.io.Text
bar:class org.apache.hadoop.io.Text
foo:class org.apache.hadoop.io.Text
