Hi Mayur,
We are planning to upgrade our distribution MR1> MR2 (YARN) and the goal is to get SPROK set up next month. I will keep you posted. Can you please keep me informed about your progress as well.

There is some work to make this work on yarn at https://github.com/aniket486/pig. (So, compile pig with ant -Dhadoopversion=23)

You can look at https://github.com/aniket486/pig/blob/spork/pig-spark to find out what sort of env variables you need (sorry, I haven't been able to clean this up- in-progress). There are few known issues with this, I will work on fixing them soon.

Known issues-
1. Limit does not work (spork-fix)
2. Foreach requires to turn off schema-tuple-backend (should be a pig-jira)
3. Algebraic udfs dont work (spork-fix in-progress)
4. Group by rework (to avoid OOMs)
5. UDF Classloader issue (requires SPARK-1053, then you can put pig-withouthadoop.jar as SPARK_JARS in SparkContext along with udf jars)

I had asked a similar question on the dev mailing list a while back (Jan 22nd). 

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.

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.
