Subject [jira] [Created] (PIG-3014) CurrentTime() UDF has undesirable characteristics
Date Mon, 29 Oct 2012 18:08:13 GMT
Jonathan Coveney created PIG-3014:

             Summary: CurrentTime() UDF has undesirable characteristics
                 Key: PIG-3014
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-3014
             Project: Pig
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Jonathan Coveney

As part of the explanation of the new DateTime datatype I noticed that we had added a CurrentTime()
UDF. The issue with this UDF is that it returns the current time _of every exec invocation_,
which can lead to confusing results. In PIG-1431 I proposed a way such that every instance
of the same NOW() will return the same time, which I think is better. Would enjoy thoughts.
