Would you want to contribute this to the Pig project or release it separately? Either way, keep us posted on your progress. It sounds interesting.

Hi
Thanks for the reply.
This will be the architecture:

1. Pig would be installed on some dedicated server machine (say P) with
hadoop support.
2. In front of it will be a web server (say S)
2.1 A web server will consist of a dedicated tomcat server (say St) for
handling dwr servlets.
  2.2 "PigScript.js"  proposed javascript.
2.2 If user is using some other server than tomcat for presentation layer (say http for php or IIS for asp.net); the server (say Su) will appear in
front of St.

-Connections between Su and St will be done through PigScript.js
- St and P will be done through dwr
- To get the results from server, this system will be using Reverse- ajax calls ( i.e async call from server to browser an inbuilt feature in DWR).

DWR is under Apache Licence V2.

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 nice.

Hi
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
jquery/dojo type of general JavaScript/AJAX library which can be used
over any server technologies (php, jsp, asp, etc.) to call pig
functions over web.

Direct Web Remoting (DWR- http://directwebremoting.org ), an open
source project at Java.net gives a functionality that allows
JavaScript in a browser to interact with Java on a server. Can we
write a JavaScript library exclusively for Pig using DWR? I am not
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
