Re: structured data split
   Structured data is always being split into different blocks, likes a
word or line.
   MapReduce task read HDFS data with the unit - *line* - it will read the
whole line from the end of previous block to start of subsequent to obtains
that part of line record. So you does not worry about the Incomplete
structured data. HDFS do nothing for this mechanism.
