our input is a line of text which may be parsed to e.g. A or B object. We want all A objects written to "A.avro" files, while all B objects written to "B.avro".
I looked into AvroMultipleOutputs class: http://avro.apache.org/docs/1.7.4/api/java/org/apache/avro/mapreduce/AvroMultipleOutputs.html There is an example, however, it's not quite clear. For job submission, it uses AvroMultipleOutputs.addNamedOutput to add schemas for A and B. In my program looks like: AvroMultipleOutputs.addNamedOutput(job, "A", AvroKeyOutputFormat.class, aSchema, null); AvroMultipleOutputs.addNamedOutput(job, "B", AvroKeyOutputFormat.class, bSchema, null); I believe this is for Reducer output files.
*My question is* what the Mapper output should be, in specific what "job.setMapOutputValueClass" should be, since the Mapper output could be A or B object, with schema aSchema or bSchema.
In my progam, I simply set it to GenericData, but get error as below:

any idea on how to build a common map output data type? The only way I can think of is "toString()", which would be very inefficient, since A and B are big objects and may change with time, which is also the reason we want to use Avro serialization. 2014-03-07 9:55 GMT+08:00 Harsh J <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>:
You may consider "SpecificRecord" or "GenericRecord" of Avor. Yong

thanks, Harsh. any idea on how to build a common map output data type?

If you have a reducer involved, you'll likely need a common map output
data type that both A and B can fit into.
