Subject [jira] Commented: (PIG-796) support conversion from numeric types to chararray
Date Thu, 28 May 2009 23:31:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-796?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12714224#action_12714224
] 

Alan Gates commented on PIG-796:
--------------------------------

Can options a and b not be combined?  Could we cache the type the first time, and if we see
the ClassCastException then attempt to infer the type, caching whatever we see for the next
time?  This will benefit users who have all or most of their values of the same type, since
we won't be introspecting every time.  It will penalize users who's values switch frequently
(as exceptions are very slow), but it will still work.  I'm guessing the former is much more
common than the latter.
