Re: read a compressed avro file
Reading an Avro file is the same for all compression types. The header of
the file contains what compression codec is used and the schema for the data
within it.

A basic read may look like:

DataFileReader<Object> reader = new DataFileReader<Object>(myFile, new
try {
  for(Object datum : reader) {
    // do something with the datum
} finally {
The documentation is here:

Several examples can be found in the unit tests named TestDataFile*.java:
