Subject Re: Is there anything in pig that supports external client to stream out a content of alias? a bit like Hive Thrift server...

I am not sure if I understood your requirements clearly, but if you
are not looking for a pure PigLatin solution and can work through
Pig's java api, then you may want to look at PigServer.
Something along the following lines:

PigServer pig = new PigServer(pc, true);
pig.registerQuery("A = load 'mydata'; ");
pig.registerQuery("B = filter A by $0 > 10;");
Iterator<Tuple> itr = pig.operIterator("B");
  if ( itr.next().get(0) == 25 ) {
    // trigger further processing.

Its obviously not directly useful, but conveys the general idea. Hope it helps.
