Subject [jira] Created: (PIG-393) notations for data bag and data map are confusing

notations for data bag and data map are confusing

                 Key: PIG-393
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-393
             Project: Pig
          Issue Type: Wish
            Reporter: Rong-En Fan
            Priority: Minor

In Pig document, we use {} for data bag and [] for data map. While data bag is more like a
collection (a list of other data) and data map is like a hash, their corresponding notation
in other language like python (and hash in perl), is actually the other way around. In Python,
they use [] for list and {} for map (dictionary). In perl, they use {} for hash, too. The
notations in Pig is very confusing for developers who are familiar with Python/perl.
