>                 Key: PIG-627
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-627
>             Project: Pig
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>    Affects Versions: types_branch
>            Reporter: Olga Natkovich
>             Fix For: types_branch
> Currently, if your Pig script contains multiple stores and some shared 
> computation, Pig will execute several independent queries. For instance:
> A = load 'data' as (a, b, c);
> B = filter A by a > 5;
> store B into 'output1';
> C = group B by b;
> store C into 'output2';
> This script will result in map-only job that generated output1 followed by a 
> map-reduce job that generated output2. As the resuld data is read, parsed and 
> filetered twice which is unnecessary and costly.
