> We currently do a lot with pig + cassandra, but one thing I've found is that currently
it's very touchy with data that comes from Cassandra for some reason.  For example, if I try
to a SUM of data that has not been validated as an LongType in Cassandra, it borks.  See this
schema script for Cassandra -
- and remove the validation on the num_heads data type and try to SUM that over the data and
it gives data type errors.  (It breaks with the num_heads validation removed and with or without
the default_validation class being set.)
> We currently do analysis over data that is either just String (UTF8) data or that we
have validated, so it works for us.  However, I've seen a couple of people trying to use Cassandra
with Pig that have had issues because of this.  One of the tenets of pig is that it will eat
anything and it kind of goes against this if the load/store somehow interferes with that.
 So in essence, I think this is a big deal for those wanting to use pig with cassandra in
the ways that pig is normally used.
