Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-1162) Put the pig loadfunc for Cassandra into core
Date Fri, 04 Jun 2010 20:52:55 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-1162:

This is what we were trying to avoid by having it in contrib/ :)

(Adding jars to lib/ makes it harder to package Cassandra with Linux distributions.)

PIG-1334 is open to add jars to maven repositories, which would make this easier...  I have
no idea what the time frame is on that but if it's any time soon I'm definitely in the "let's
just wait for that" camp.

> Currently the Pig loadfunc for Cassandra lives in a contrib module.  Currently it also
doesn't work properly in all cases so it would need some fixing there too.  For example, I
haven't gotten it to work standalone with just pig.  It seems to work better against a hadoop
> The other question for putting it into core is whether we keep an example of it's usage
in contrib - kind of like what we're doing with WordCount - only for pig - the reason being
is that you need at least Pig somewhere for the CassandraStore (the loadfunc) to actually
be useful.  Seems very similar to the WordCount case though - and it can be more stable with
CassandraStore being built with core (hopefully).
