I had asked a similar question on the dev mailing list a while back (Jan 22nd).See the archives: http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/spark-dev/201401.mbox/browser -> look for spork.Basically Matei said:
Yup, that was it, though I believe people at Twitter picked it up again recently. I’d suggest asking Dmitriy if you know him. I’ve seen interest in this from several other groups, and if there’s enough of it, maybe we can start another open source repo to track it. The work in that repo you pointed to was done over one week, and already had most of Pig’s operators working. (I helped out with this prototype over Twitter’s hack week.) That work also calls the Scala API directly, because it was done before we had a Java API; it should be easier with the Java one.Tom

Hi everyone,We are using to Pig to build our data pipeline. I came across Spork -- Pig on Spark at: https://github.com/dvryaboy/pig and not sure if it is still active.
Can someone please let me know the status of Spork or any other effort that will let us run Pig on Spark? We can significantly benefit by using Spark, but we would like to keep using the existing Pig scripts.
