Re: Why LineRecordWriter.write(..) is synchronized
Then is this a bug?  Synchronization in absence of any race condition is normally considered "bad".

In any case id like to know why this writer is synchronized whereas the other one are not.. That is, I think, then point at issue: either other writers should be synchronized or else this one shouldn't be - consistency across the write implementations is probably desirable so that changes to output formats or record writers don't lead to bugs in multithreaded environments .
