> There have been several requests on the mailing list for
> information about how to access the DistributedCache from UDFs, e.g.:
> http://www.mail-archive.com/hive-user@hadoop.apache.org/msg01650.html
> http://www.mail-archive.com/hive-user@hadoop.apache.org/msg01926.html
> While responses to these emails suggested several workarounds, the only correct
> way of accessing the distributed cache is via the static methods of Hadoop's
> DistributedCache class, and all of these methods require that the JobConf be passed
> in as a parameter. Hence, giving UDFs access to the distributed cache
> reduces to giving UDFs access to the JobConf.
> I propose the following changes to GenericUDF/UDAF/UDTF:
> * Add an exec_init(Configuration conf) method that is called during Operator initialization
at runtime.
> * Change the name of the "initialize" method to "compile_init" to make it clear that
this method is called at compile-time.
