Hadoop by default provides only FileOutputCommitter and the same has been used internally except in the NOF.
There are cases where using FOC is not much appropriate.
DBOutputFormat instantiates FOC, though it does nothing.
I think using NOC will be much more appropriate here.
And also it can be used along with other OFs, where taking special care of the task/job output directories may not be required.
