Subject Re: Ajax library for Pig
Date Wed, 08 Apr 2009 15:41:33 GMT
Sorry if these are silly questions, but I'm not very familiar with  
some of these technologies.  So what you propose is that Pig would be  
installed on some dedicated server machine and a web server would be  
placed in front of it.  Then client libraries would be developed that  
made calls to the web server.  Would these client side libraries  
include presentation in the browser, both for user's submitting  
queries and receiving results?  Also, pig currently does not have a  
server mode, thus any web server would have to spin off threads that  
ran a pig job.

If the above is what you're proposing, I think it would be great.   
Opening up pig to more users by making it browser accessible would be
