Hi Mohit
        I'm not an expert in pig and it'd be better using the pig user group for pig specific
queries. I'd try to help you with some basic trouble shooting of the same

It sounds strange that pig's XML Loader can't load larger XML files that consists of multiple
blocks. Or is it like, pig is not able to load the concatenated files that you are trying
with? If that is the case then it could be because of some issues since you are just appending
multiple xml file contents into a single file.

Pig users can give you some workarounds how they are dealing with loading of small xml files
that are stored efficiently.

 I am using pig's XMLLoader in piggybank to read xml files concatenated in
a text file. But pig script doesn't work when file is big that causes
hadoop to split the files.

Any suggestions on how I can make it work? Below is my simple script that I
would like to enhance, only if it starts working. Please note this works
for small files.

register '/root/pig-0.8.1-cdh3u3/contrib/piggybank/java/piggybank.jar'

raw = LOAD '/examples/testfile5.txt using
org.apache.pig.piggybank.storage.XMLLoader('<abc>') as (document:chararray);

dump raw;
