      Description

      CodecFactory specify the list of codec that are supported by Hadoop. However, it returns a codec only by a file's name. I would like to make getCodec method to alternatively take a codec's class name.

      This is required by HDFS-1435, where
      1. it allows an HDFS admin to configure which codec to use to save an image.
      2. It stores the codec class name in its on-disk image instead of a file's suffix.

      When saving and reading an image, I'd like to get an codec from CodecFactory by its class name.
