CompositeRecordReader: ClassLoader set in JobConf is not passed onto WrappedRecordReaders

      I am using a custom ClassLoader which I set in my JobConf via setClassLoader(). The ClassLoader is loaded key and value classes which are required to read records from SequenceFiles that were written out in a previous MapReduce job.

      However, I am getting a ClassNotFoundException when using the CompositeInputFormat to create a RecordReader to read these SequenceFiles from HDFS. It occurs when the SequenceFile.Reader tries to create an instance of the Key/Value classes, presumably because the class loader SequenceFile.Reader is using is not the one I set with JobConf.setClassLoader. Below is an example of the stack trace I get:

      Caused by: java.io.IOException: WritableName can't load class
      	at org.apache.hadoop.io.WritableName.getClass(WritableName.java:73)

      	... 33 more

      I'll attach a unit test that can demonstrate this more clearly....
