Eyal Allweil commented on DATAFU-130:
-------------------------------------

I think this is a good Jira issue to put in the [Apache Help Wanted site|https://helpwanted.apache.org/].
If there's no objection, I'll add it there.

> In our [guide|http://datafu.incubator.apache.org/blog/2013/09/04/datafu-1-0.html], a
macro is described for making a three-way left outer join conveniently. We can add this macro
to DataFu to make it even easier to use.
> The macro's code is as follows:
> {noformat}
> DEFINE left_outer_join(relation1, key1, relation2, key2, relation3, key3) returns joined
{
>   cogrouped = COGROUP $relation1 BY $key1, $relation2 BY $key2, $relation3 BY $key3;
>   $joined = FOREACH cogrouped GENERATE
>     FLATTEN($relation1),
>     FLATTEN(EmptyBagToNullFields($relation2)),
>     FLATTEN(EmptyBagToNullFields($relation3));
> }
> (we would obviously want to add a test for this, too)
> {noformat}
