I have not tried or tested ChainMapper with Avro myself. It will probably
work if you configure the input schemas or output schemas appropriately.
Take a look at what AvroJog.setInputSchema is doing, if you are familiar
enough with hadoop's configuration you may be able to work it out. Others
likely know more than I do on this.
Also, you may be interested in how things are done in this variation:
