Sorry if these are silly questions, but I'm not very familiar with
some of these technologies. So what you propose is that Pig would be
installed on some dedicated server machine and a web server would be
placed in front of it. Then client libraries would be developed that
made calls to the web server. Would these client side libraries
include presentation in the browser, both for user's submitting
queries and receiving results? Also, pig currently does not have a
server mode, thus any web server would have to spin off threads that
ran a pig job.
If the above is what you're proposing, I think it would be great.
Opening up pig to more users by making it browser accessible would be

Since pig is getting a lot of usage in industries and universities;
how about adding a front-end support for Pig? The plan is to write a

functions over web.
Direct Web Remoting (DWR- http://directwebremoting.org ), an open
source project at Java.net gives a functionality that allows
sure about licensing issues.
The major advantages I can point is
-Use of Pig over HTTP rather SSH.
-User management will become easy as this can be handled easily
using any CMS
