Subject [jira] Commented: (PIG-320) The parser/type checker should use the getSchema method of UDFs to deduce return type/schema
Date Mon, 21 Jul 2008 14:01:31 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-320?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12615247#action_12615247

Pi Song commented on PIG-320:

I'm curios about this.
Then if the outputSchema implementation is provided, why do extract only the first field?
Isn't it more intuitive to use the whole schema directly? My suggestion might break some stuffs
but it seems a bit better for users.

        Schema udfSchema = ef.outputSchema(inputSchema);
        if (null != udfSchema) {
            Schema.FieldSchema fs;
            try {
                fs = udfSchema.getField(0);
            } catch (ParseException pe) {
                throw new VisitorException(pe.getMessage());
            try {
            } catch (FrontendException fe) {
                throw new VisitorException(fe.getMessage());
        } else {

> Currently, the parser/type checker uses the getReturnType to deduce the return type of
the user defined function (UDF). This mechanism is satisfactory only for basic types (int,
long, ...); for composite types (tuple, bag), the schema is also required.The abstract class
EvalFunc interface exposes the outputSchema to deduce the return type/schema of the UDF. The
parser/type checker should use this method to figure out the return type/schema of the UDF
and use it appropriately.
