Hadoop java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: 3


The input is a list of house data where each input record contains information about a single house: (address,city,state,zip,value). The five items in a record is delimited by the sign comma (,). The output should be the average house value in each zip code. Following is my current code:

public class ziphousevalue1 {

    public static class ZipHouseValueMapper extends Mapper < LongWritable, Text, Text, IntWritable > {
        private static final Text zip = new Text();
        private static final IntWritable value = new IntWritable();

        protected void map(LongWritable offset, Text line, Context context) throws IOException, InterruptedException {
            String[] tokens = value.toString().split(",");
            context.write(new Text(zip), value);

    public static class ZipHouseValueReducer extends Reducer < Text, IntWritable, Text, DoubleWritable > {

        private DoubleWritable average = new DoubleWritable();

        protected void reduce(Text zip, Iterable < IntWritable > values, Context context) throws IOException, InterruptedException {
            int count = 0;
            int sum = 0;
            for (IntWritable value: values) {
                sum += value.get();
            average.set(sum / count);
            context.write(zip, average);

    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
        Configuration conf = new Configuration();
        String[] otherArgs = new GenericOptionsParser(conf, args).getRemainingArgs();
        if (otherArgs.length != 2) {
            System.err.println("Usage: ziphousevalue <in> <out>");
        Job job = new Job(conf, "ziphousevalue");

        FileInputFormat.addInputPath(job, new Path(otherArgs[0]));
        FileOutputFormat.setOutputPath(job, new Path(otherArgs[1]));
        System.exit(job.waitForCompletion(true) ? 0 : 1);

    public static void configure(Configuration conf) {


However, it produces following error. I have taken a look at similar problem in this site, none seems to solve the problem. I have made sure the input files are correct. Is there something else I should check to fix this error? Thank you for your time.
