Pass global configurations to UDF
---------------------------------

                 Key: PIG-602
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-602
             Project: Pig
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: impl
            Reporter: Yiping Han


We are seeking an easy way to pass a large number of global configurations to 
UDFs.

Since our application contains many pig jobs, and has a large number of 
configurations. Passing configurations through command line is not an ideal way 
(i.e. modifying single parameter needs to change multiple command lines). And 
to put everything into the hadoop conf is not an ideal way either.

We would like to see if Pig can provide such a facility that allows us to pass 
a configuration file in some format(XML?) and then make it available through 
out all the UDFs.
