Subject [jira] Commented: (PIG-1178) LogicalPlan and Optimizer are too complex and hard to work with
Date Tue, 27 Jul 2010 22:25:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-1178?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12892960#action_12892960

Alan Gates commented on PIG-1178:

12K lines of code, wow!

In ProjectExpression, what does the new attachedRelationalOp do?  javadoc comments on that
in the constructor would be good.

Is the purpose of this patch to also make this the default optimizer or leave it in experimental
mode?  If it is to make it the default, I think we should move it from the experimental package,
though probably in a separate patch.  If it isn't, any thoughts on when it would be ready
to become the default optimizer?

> The current implementation of the logical plan and the logical optimizer in Pig has proven
to not be easily extensible. Developer feedback has indicated that adding new rules to the
optimizer is quite burdensome. In addition, the logical plan has been an area of numerous
bugs, many of which have been difficult to fix. Developers also feel that the logical plan
is difficult to understand and maintain. The root cause for these issues is that a number
of design decisions that were made as part of the 0.2 rewrite of the front end have now proven
to be sub-optimal. The heart of this proposal is to revisit a number of those proposals and
rebuild the logical plan with a simpler design that will make it much easier to maintain the
logical plan as well as extend the logical optimizer.
