Subject [jira] Created: (PIG-505) Lineage for UDFs that do not return bytearray

Lineage for UDFs that do not return bytearray

                 Key: PIG-505
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-505
             Project: Pig
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: types_branch
            Reporter: Santhosh Srinivasan
            Assignee: Santhosh Srinivasan
             Fix For: types_branch

In Pig-335, the lineage design states that UDFs that return bytearrays could cause problems
in tracing the lineage. For UDFs that do not return bytearray, the lineage design should pickup
the right load function to use as long as there is no ambiguity.  In the current implementation,
we could have issues with scripts like:

a = load 'input' as (field1);
b = foreach a generate myudf_to_double(field1);
c =  foreach b generate $0 + 2.0;

When $0 has to be cast to a double, the lineage code will complain that it hit a UDF and hence
cannot determine the right load function to use.
