The jar spec allows a user to specify a service provider via the Service Loader interface
for things like XML implementations. These implementations can be provided by including files
in META-INF/services that have a line declaring which implementation should be loaded by the

I've attached a contrived example that mimics what I witnessed at a client site. They had
xalan and xerces jars in an Oozie lib directory as dependencies for a Pig workflow. The stacktrace
is also attached.

There is a work-around for this problem - either include all necessary jars, e.g. serializer.jar,
in your Oozie workflow lib, or rely on default xml providers. But, is this expected behavior
from yarn/map-reduce?
