Subject [jira] Commented: (PIG-1430) ISODateTime -> DateTime: DateTime UDFs Should Also Support int/second Unix Times in All Operations
Date Fri, 02 Jul 2010 06:17:49 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-1430?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12884557#action_12884557

Russell Jurney commented on PIG-1430:

I've been thinking about the feedback at the contributors meeting Monday. I propose that we
postpone the addition of a full datetime PIG-1314 type in lieu of the builtins described below.
This change is easy and I can do it immediately and get it in 0.8. The original proposal is
quite hard, and I can't really estimate when I could have it completed. I'm not sure we need
it. There are many other more important things I would rather do. 

I'd like to remove the piggybank classes org.apache.pig.piggybank.evaluation.datetime.* or
at least deprecate them. 

I'd like to add the following builtins, which act on both ISO8601 datetime strings and long
unix times. These could be made into many functions each, but I'd prefer to keep them as short
as possible. I suggest we mirror the oracle date/time functions when possible: http://psoug.org/reference/date_func.html

* Units 

When listed below, units are defined as one of: 


* Truncations 

TRUNC(date, unit) or TRUNC_DATE(date, unit) 

long/epoch input returns long/epoch output. 
ISO8601 string input returns IS08601 datetime output. 

* Dates to durations 

DURATION(date, unit) 

long/epoch input returns long output in the unit specified. 
ISO8601 input returns an ISO8601 duration 

* Adding/subtracting durations and dates: use longs. 

* Utilities 


The only ugly part to this is that ISO times are 2nd class citizens in that they cannot be
added/subtracted. I'm prepared to live with that :)

>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: impl
>    Affects Versions: 0.7.0

>             Fix For: 0.8.0
> All functions in contrib.piggybank.java.src.main.java.org.apache.pig.piggybank.evaluation.datetime
should seamlessly accept integer Unix/POSIX times, and return Unix time output when given
an int, and ISO output when given a chararray.
> Note: Unix/POSIX times are the number of seconds elapsed since midnight proleptic Coordinated
Universal Time (UTC) of January 1, 1970, not counting leap seconds.  See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unix_time
