Subject [jira] Commented: (PIG-1381) Need a way for Pig to take an alternative property file
Date Tue, 04 May 2010 17:33:10 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-1381?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12863906#action_12863906

Olga Natkovich commented on PIG-1381:
-------------------------------------

I would also like to propose that we address issue raised in https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-602
as part of this JIRA.

I think what is asked in PIG-602 can be accomplished by making the properties passed in available
to all UDFs vi UDFContext. The UDFs can decide what they pull out.

> 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, pig-cluster-hadoop-site.xml.
