Subject [jira] [Commented] (PIG-3015) Rewrite of AvroStorage
Date Fri, 01 Feb 2013 14:16:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-3015?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13568753#comment-13568753
] 

Cheolsoo Park commented on PIG-3015:
------------------------------------

I think the patch is very close to being committed. Two main obstacles are:
# Tests do not pass with Hadoop-2.0.x (i.e. ant clean test -Dtestcase=TestAvroStorage -Dhadoopversion=23).
# Documentation is missing.

I will give another shot on debugging #1 when I get more time, but any help would be appreciated!

> The current AvroStorage implementation has a lot of issues: it requires old versions
of Avro, it copies data much more than needed, and it's verbose and complicated. (One pet
peeve of mine is that old versions of Avro don't support Snappy compression.)
> I rewrote AvroStorage from scratch to fix these issues. In early tests, the new implementation
is significantly faster, and the code is a lot simpler. Rewriting AvroStorage also enabled
me to implement support for Trevni (as TrevniStorage).
> I'm opening this ticket to facilitate discussion while I figure out the best way to contribute
the changes back to Apache.
