Re: using the key from a SequenceFile

An example input format for using SequenceFile keys in hive is at
https://gist.github.com/2421795 .  The code just reverses how the key and
value are accessed in the standard SequenceFileRecordRecorder and
SequenceFileInputFormat that comes with hadoop.

You can use this custom input format by specifying the following when you
create the table:

    INPUTFORMAT 'com.mycompany.SequenceFileKeyInputFormat'
