William Watson commented on PIG-4458:
-------------------------------------

I'm still confused about where to update other documentation.

> Right now, the MapSideMergeValidator outright rejects any foreach that has a UDF in it:
> {code}
> private boolean isAcceptableForEachOp(Operator lo) throws LogicalToPhysicalTranslatorException
{
>         if (lo instanceof LOForEach) {
>             OperatorPlan innerPlan = ((LOForEach) lo).getInnerPlan();
>             validateMapSideMerge(innerPlan.getSinks(), innerPlan);
>             return !containsUDFs((LOForEach) lo);
>         } else {
>             return false;
>         }
>     }
> {code}
> There is a TODO for this later on in that same class (inside containsUDFs):
> {code}
> // TODO (dvryaboy): in the future we could relax this rule by tracing what fields
> // are being passed into the UDF, and only refusing if the UDF is working on the
> // join key. Transforms of other fields should be ok.
> {code}
> We should do the TODO and relax this requirement or just remove it altogether
