Subject [jira] Commented: (PIG-653) Make fieldsToRead work in loader
Date Mon, 09 Feb 2009 21:41:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-653?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12672020#action_12672020

Pradeep Kamath commented on PIG-653:

Not so sure about using RequiredFieldList for subFields - this will mean we could ask for
all subFields in two ways - 
1. By just asking for the main field (this will imply we need all sub fields)
2. By asking for the main field with a subField which has its allFieldsRequired flag set to

I think it would be better to keep the subFields as only THE required subfields represented
as a list. RequiredFieldList is specifically being introduced to handle top level information
to be given to the loader which may not be applicable at a field level.

> Currently pig does not call the fieldsToRead function in LoadFunc, thus it does not provide
information to load functions on what fields are needed.  We need to implement a visitor that
determines (where possible) which fields in a file will be used and relays that information
to the load function.
