Subject [jira] [Created] (PIG-2836) Namespace in Pig macros collides with Pig scripts
Date Tue, 24 Jul 2012 00:12:34 GMT
Russell Jurney created PIG-2836:

             Summary: Namespace in Pig macros collides with Pig scripts
                 Key: PIG-2836
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-2836
             Project: Pig
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: grunt, parser
    Affects Versions: 0.10.0, 0.9.2, 0.11, 0.10.1
            Reporter: Russell Jurney
            Assignee: Alan Gates
            Priority: Critical

Relation names in macros collide with relation names in the calling pig script. This is my
most common source of errors and it makes writing macros hard. Suggest that the macro processor
create a unique namespace for all relations in a macro other than $in and $out. Prepend something
to each relation name or somehow create a unique per-macro namespace.

This may conflict with some uses of macros where relation names are passed through passively,
but this is always avoidable by supplying parameters and feels GOTO f*cked.
