Re: run time error during reduce stage: No field named ____ in: null
I've made another gist for this rather than clutter up the mail with code
snippets: https://gist.github.com/4002132

I basically just changed all instances of Pair<GenericRecord, Integer> in
the reducer with just GenericRecord. I also changed the output schema that
gets set in the Main function.

When I run this, I get a run time error that's also included in the above
gist: "java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Not a Pair schema:"

The pom.xml file I'm using is also in this gist, in case I'm screwing up a
version somewhere. My intent is to be running on CDH4 using MRv1 and Avro
1.7.1, and as far as I can tell from the pom.xml I'm doing just that. Could
be mistaken.

Thanks again for your time.
