Hadoop MapReduce Join | error java.io.IOException: Unable to load Abbrevation data..!

I have wrote one small Mapside join program. but i am getting this error - java.io.IOException: Unable to load Abbrevation data..!! and job has failed....

My code for this is below -

package com.mr.join.mapside;

 * calling way
 * hadoop jar mapsidejoin2.jar com.mr.join.mapside.MapSideJoin pupulation_dataset.txt op_mapsidejoin
public class MapSideJoin {

    public static class MyMapper extends Mapper<LongWritable, Text, Text, Text>{
        private Map<String ,String> abMap = new HashMap<String, String>();
        private Text outputKey = new Text();
        private Text outputValue = new Text();

        protected void setup(Context context) throws IOException,InterruptedException{
            Path[] files = DistributedCache.getLocalCacheFiles(context.getConfiguration());

            for (Path p : files){
                if (p.getName().equals("abc.dat")) {
                    BufferedReader reader = new BufferedReader(new FileReader(p.toString()));
                    String line = reader.readLine();

                    while (line != null ) {
                        String[] tokens = line.split("\t");
                        String ab = tokens[0];
                        String state = tokens[1];
                        abMap.put(ab, state);
                        line = reader.readLine();

            if (abMap.isEmpty()){
                throw new IOException("Unable to load Abbrevation data..!!");

        protected void map(LongWritable key, Text value, Context context)
                throws IOException, InterruptedException {
                String row = value.toString();
                String[] tokens = row.split("\t");
                String inab = tokens[0];
                String state = abMap.get(inab);
                context.write(outputKey, outputValue);


    public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException, InterruptedException, ClassNotFoundException {
        Job job = new Job();
        job.setJobName("Distributed Chase");

        try {
            DistributedCache.addCacheFile(new URI("abc.dat"), job.getConfiguration());
        } catch (Exception e) {

        FileInputFormat.addInputPath(job, new Path(args[0]));
        FileOutputFormat.setOutputPath(job, new Path(args[1]));



Does any buddy help me how to fix this error or any debug skill they may help to figure out that has been wrong here.
