Subject [jira] Created: (PIG-602) Pass global configurations to UDF

Pass global configurations to UDF

                 Key: PIG-602
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-602
             Project: Pig
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: impl
            Reporter: Yiping Han

We are seeking an easy way to pass a large number of global configurations to UDFs.

Since our application contains many pig jobs, and has a large number of configurations. Passing
configurations through command line is not an ideal way (i.e. modifying single parameter needs
to change multiple command lines). And to put everything into the hadoop conf is not an ideal
way either.

We would like to see if Pig can provide such a facility that allows us to pass a configuration
file in some format(XML?) and then make it available through out all the UDFs.
