Subject [jira] Commented: (PIG-602) Pass global configurations to UDF
Date Sun, 26 Apr 2009 20:19:30 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-602?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12702932#action_12702932

David Ciemiewicz commented on PIG-602:

I think PIG-768 is related and would benefit from a consistent set of properties and configuration
values that are populated by Pig run-time and user set values.

> We are seeking an easy way to pass a large number of global configurations to UDFs.
> Since our application contains many pig jobs, and has a large number of configurations.
Passing configurations through command line is not an ideal way (i.e. modifying single parameter
needs to change multiple command lines). And to put everything into the hadoop conf is not
an ideal way either.
> We would like to see if Pig can provide such a facility that allows us to pass a configuration
file in some format(XML?) and then make it available through out all the UDFs.
