>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-616
>             Project: Pig
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: impl
>    Affects Versions: 0.2.0
>            Reporter: Santhosh Srinivasan
>            Assignee: Alan Gates
> When we specify a (complex) type as a column in Pig, the TypeCastInserter inserts the
appropriate cast for the (complex) type. However, in the implementation of POCast.java, when
databyte arrays are converted to the (complex) types, we invoke the bytesToXXX method. 
> For complex types, especially tuples and bags, we do not enforce the typing information
specified by the user in the AS clause or with the explicit cast statement. The implementation
solely relies on bytesToXXX to figure out the right type.
> An example of a query that fails is given below. Wrt the query, the data is a single
column that is a bag of integers. The user specifies this bag to be a bag of chararray. This
conversion is allowed in pig but the implementation does not perform the actual cast. Instead
the bytesToBag is called on the stream. The resulting type is a bag of integers and not a
bag of chararray. In the subsequent statement the user (correctly) assumes that the conversion
has been performed but in reality it has not been done. At run time when a chararray based
operation is performed we see a ClassCastException.
> The notion of a schema has is absent in the physical operators. The schema/fieldSchema
in the logical layer has to be passed on to the physical layer. The schema can be used to
perform additional operations like casting, etc.
