Apache Nutch: FetcherJob throws NoSuchElementException deep in Gora

I'm running Apache Nutch 2.3.1 out of the box, which uses Gora 0.6.1. I've followed the instructions here: http://wiki.apache.org/nutch/RunNutchInEclipse

It ran fine with the

InjectorJob
.

Now I'm running the
FetcherJob
, and Gora uses
MemStore
as a data store. I have
gora.properties
containing

gora.datastore.default=org.apache.gora.memory.store.MemStore


This throws:

This happens so deep into Nutch and Gora that I have no idea why it's happening. I tried upgrading to Gora 0.8 but same problem. I tried downgrading Gora to 0.6, same problem. I wanted to switch to another data store like hBase but that's a bit overkill for what I need at this moment.

Please help me figure this out.

Answer

I confirm the problem is in MemStore.

In 0.6.1 there is a bug: https://github.com/apache/gora/blob/apache-gora-0.6.1/gora-core/src/main/java/org/apache/gora/memory/store/MemStore.java#L128

That is already solved in master: https://github.com/apache/gora/blob/master/gora-core/src/main/java/org/apache/gora/memory/store/MemStore.java#L155 , the access to #firstKey() has a guard #isEmpty()

BUT, don't try to update to Gora 0.7-SNAPSHOT because Nutch is not adapted to it by now.

--- Edit:

If you want to use Gora-0.7-SNAPSHOT with Nutch 2.x, maybe you could have it working doing this:

  1. Download Gora's master branch with version 0.7-SNAPSHOT
  2. Do mvn install in gora/ to install it in maven's local repository
  3. Apply this patch: https://paste.apache.org/jjqz so Nutch 2.3.1 will work with Gora 0.7-SNAPSHOT
  4. Do Nutch's tutorial stuff

I hope it works :)

-- edit 2:

About using HBase, it is quite easy to do a local installation for experimenting.

  1. As stated in Nutch2Tutorial, download HBase 0.98.8-hadoop2
  2. Deflate the tar.gz file in a directory, for example: /home/you/hbase
  3. cd /home/you/hbase/bin
  4. ./start-hbase.sh

Now you have HBase up&running. Configure Nutch:

gora.properties:

gora.datastore.default=org.apache.gora.hbase.store.HBaseStore
gora.datastore.autocreateschema=true
gora.datastore.scanner.caching=100

nutch-site.xml:

<configuration>
<property>
 <name>storage.data.store.class</name>
 <value>org.apache.gora.hbase.store.HBaseStore</value>
 <description>Default class for storing data</description>
</property>
</configuration>

Done. It will take all the default configurations for HBase: localhost, /tmp/..., blablabla
