Subject [jira] [Created] (MAPREDUCE-5457) Add a KeyOnlyTextOutputFormat to enable streaming write out text files without separators

-------------------------------------

             Summary: Add a KeyOnlyTextOutputFormat to enable streaming write out text files
without separators
                 Key: MAPREDUCE-5457
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-5457
             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 2.1.0-beta
            Reporter: Sandy Ryza


MR jobs sometimes want to just output lines of text, not key/value pairs.  TextOutputFormat
handles this by, if a null value is given, outputting only the key with no separator.  Streaming
jobs are unable to take advantage of this, because they can't output null values.  A text
output format that ignores values and only outputs keys would allow streaming jobs to output
lines of text.
