Subject Re: Is there anything in pig that supports external client to stream out a content of alias? a bit like Hive Thrift server...
Date Tue, 07 Dec 2010 18:26:20 GMT
yeah I came across the openIterator(alias) on PigServer.

basically that's what I like to get (dump of the alias and nothing else) when I execute pig

I'm currently writing a ruby wrapper that will use STORE the alias into temporary location
in hdfs then do Hadoop file fetch
any better idea?
