Avro >> mail # user >> run time error during reduce stage: No field named ____ in: null

Re: run time error during reduce stage: No field named ____ in: null
I think I have it.

Your reducer isn't being called at all, because the signature of the
reducer method doesn't match the one in AvroReducer. So, the base
implementation isn't being overridden. You've stated "Iterator" where
it should actually be "Iterable".

If you use Eclipse, look for a green arrow icon next to the method
declaration - that means it's being overridden properly.
