Hope this is the correct forum for a hadoop question.

I have a file with a bunch of lines like this:

It continues on for all 50 states, then there is another word like politics:30 Virginia ... etc.

I want to do a distributed sort on this using mapreduce. I know mapreduce sorts between the map and reduces stages, so I just want to emit from map, then from reduce without processing, but it is not working. Here is my map and reduce function:

Here is my main class

And here is the inputformat class i wrote since FileInputFormat would always fail

Here is the error

Thought I would post the solution I found. It was an incredibly dumb error on my part. In my main class, I named the Job instance sort, but then when setting the mapOutputKey, mapOutputValues, outputKey and outputValue, I use the identifier job. That identifier was from a previous mapreduce in the chain and I had just copied and pasted the code without remembering to change the job identifier.
