Need a way for Pig to take an alternative property file

                 Key: PIG-1381
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-1381
             Project: Pig
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: impl
    Affects Versions: 0.7.0
            Reporter: Daniel Dai
             Fix For: 0.8.0

Currently, Pig read the first ever pig.properties in CLASSPATH. Pig has a default pig.properties
and if user have a different pig.properties, there will be a conflict since we can only read
one. There are couple of ways to solve it:

1. Give a command line option for user to pass an additional property file
2. Change the name for default pig.properties to pig-default.properties, and user can give
a pig.properties to override
3. Further, can we consider to use pig-default.xml/pig-site.xml, which seems to be more natural
for hadoop community. If so, we shall provide backward compatibility to also read pig.properties,
