Subject [jira] Commented: (PIG-928) UDFs in scripting languages
Date Thu, 04 Mar 2010 23:57:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-928?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12841619#action_12841619

Dmitriy V. Ryaboy commented on PIG-928:

Woody, what I meant by my remark was that I disagree with Ashutosh and agree with you, not
that I only want to support Python. If using a framework meant we could support 100 jvm-based
languages and your approach meant we could support 2, I'd still go with what actually works.

By the way, we should adapt this to create a reflection UDF to call out to Java libraries,
so we don't have to wrap things like String.split anymore.

 This frees users from needing to compile Java, generate a jar, etc.  It also opens Pig to
programmers who prefer scripting languages over Java.
