AVRO M/R: ClassNotFoundException: ...Paranamer
Using Avro 1.7.3 with hadoop-0.20.2 Under MapR M3.

I have sucessfully used AVRO in Non-Map/Reduce jobs to read and write
AVRO format from HDFS. Now I'm running code based on the
AvroGenericMaxTemperature example in Chapter 4 of Tom White's "Hadoop -
The definitive Guide" to convert many large .tsv files to AVRO format.

My code uses the DistributedCache.addFileToClassPath() method to pass
avro-1.7.3.jar and avro-mapred-1.7.3-hadoop1.jar to the TT.

When run, all the map jobs fail due to: ClassNotFoundException:

I did a lot of digging around and wound up using the DistributedCache to
pass avro-tools-1.6.1.jar in an attempt to resolve this. This goes to
hell like this:

java.lang.RuntimeException: Error in configuring object

Any suggestions what I am doing wrong here?
