Subject [jira] Commented: (PIG-54) built in aggregate functions fail on invalid input
Date Tue, 30 Sep 2008 20:39:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-54?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12635850#action_12635850

SUM handles this, we count NULLs in COUNT - AVG works based on these.

The patch fixed MIN and MAX

> This issue is true for all built-in aggregate functions. If they get type different from
what they expect, they through an exception. Instead, they should treat the value as null.
We still need to define what that means in Pig but if we stick with SQL definition, all but
count(*) computations would ignore them.
