I'm using Hadoop on my Ubuntu machine. And I'm trying to write a seq file using the below code, but the code finishes and says "sucessfully (or) read 202000 ...." and on the destintation folder I can't find my output seq file. So if anyone could please advise.

import org.apache.hadoop.fs.FileSystem;
import org.apache.hadoop.fs.Path;

import java.io.FileInputStream;
import java.io.BufferedInputStream;
import java.io.DataInputStream;

import java.nio.ByteBuffer;

import org.apache.hadoop.io.SequenceFile;
import org.apache.hadoop.io.LongWritable;

import org.apache.hadoop.conf.Configuration;
import org.apache.hadoop.util.GenericOptionsParser;

import org.apache.hadoop.util.Tool;
import org.apache.hadoop.util.ToolRunner;

public class MainUpload_sp
extends Configured
implements Tool

public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
int res = ToolRunner.run(new Configuration(), new MainUpload_sp(), args);

public int run(String[] args) throws Exception {

System.out.println("UPLOADING Program");

if( args.length != 2 ) {
System.err.println("usage: hadoop xxx.jar upload_sp <localfilein.dat> <hdfsfileout.seq>");
return -1;
String filename_in = args[0];
String filename_out = args[1];

Configuration conf = getConf();

FileInputStream fin = new FileInputStream(filename_in);
BufferedInputStream bfin = new BufferedInputStream(fin, 8192);

FileSystem fs = FileSystem.get(conf);
if( fs.getConf() == null) {
System.err.println("Could not initialize the local filesystem");
return -1;

java.io.File fileout = new java.io.File(filename_out);

Path path_out = new Path(fileout.getPath());
SequenceFile.Writer writer = SequenceFile.createWriter(fs, conf,

long numRecords;

try {
numRecords = 0;

LongWritable Key = new LongWritable(0);
LabeledSplitPointBuff lsp = new LabeledSplitPointBuff();
while(true) {

int read = bfin.read(lsp.data, 0, LabeledSplitPointBuff.RECORDSIZE);
System.out.println("read "+read);
if (read != LabeledSplitPointBuff.RECORDSIZE) break;
writer.append(Key, lsp);
numRecords += 1;
} finally {

System.out.println("sucessfully (or) read " + Long.toString(numRecords)
+ " from " + filename_in + " to " + filename_out);

return 0;

I guess you are creating destination file in local file system.. and not in hdfs...
