Subject [jira] Commented: (PIG-928) UDFs in scripting languages
Date Fri, 16 Jul 2010 01:15:53 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-928?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12888979#action_12888979

Aniket Mokashi commented on PIG-928:

Commenting on behavior of EvalFunc<Object>, we consider following UDF-
public class UDF1 extends EvalFunc<Object> {
    class Student{
        int age;
        String name;
        Student(int a, String nm) {
            age = a;
            name = nm;
    public Object exec(Tuple input) throws IOException {
        return new Student(12, (String)input.get(0));
    public Schema outputSchema(Schema input) {
        return new Schema(new Schema.FieldSchema(null, DataType.BYTEARRAY));
Although, this one define its output schema as ByteArray we fail this one as we do not know
how to deserialize Student. Clearly, this is due to the bug in POUserFunc which fails to convert
to ByteArray. Hence, res.result != null should be changed to result.result !=null.

> It should be possible to write UDFs in scripting languages such as python, ruby, etc.
 This frees users from needing to compile Java, generate a jar, etc.  It also opens Pig to
programmers who prefer scripting languages over Java.
