Subject [jira] [Commented] (PIG-2902) Pig defaults numeric types to integer instead of double
Date Sun, 02 Sep 2012 23:25:07 GMT

Dmitriy V. Ryaboy commented on PIG-2902:
----------------------------------------

You are probably right, but would changing this break existing scripts / assumptions?

> This was observed in PIG-2835, where Pig defaults the type used in SUM() as integer while
it's actually double, thus parsing each number to integer would throw an exception. PIG-2835
replaced the expensive exception handling with a light weight sanity check, but do we really
want to default the numeric types to integer?
