Subject [jira] Commented: (PIG-115) start script for pig
Date Fri, 22 Feb 2008 02:08:19 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-115?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12571256#action_12571256

Stefan Groschupf commented on PIG-115:

Here are my thoughts:

The start script should be as less intelligent as possible, Pigs Main class already handles
parameters, so we basically only need to expose that. 
The old perl script reads in a kind of configuration file and than construct the parameter
that are used to call the Main.
I suggest instead - as hadoop - that pig has a conf folder and a default configuration file.
Those values are used as default values for all the properties. 
However a user can overwrite this values by using command line arguments.

I'm happy to provide a patch based on the result of our discuss here.

for all users.
