David Ciemiewicz commented on PIG-759:
--------------------------------------

If hbase has named columns in it's schema, why wouldn't it be appropriate to 
say something like:

table = load '$tablename/$subsection' using HBaseStorage() as (a, b);

Since HBaseStorage() is specified:

1) Isn't hbase:// implicit?
2) Shouldn't I be able to just specify the names in the AS clause?

> We would like to change the HBaseStorage function to use a scheme when 
> loading a table in pig. The scheme we are thinking of is: "hbase". So in 
> order to load an hbase table in a pig script the statement should read:
> {noformat}
> table = load 'hbase://<tablename>' using HBaseStorage();
> {noformat}
> If the scheme is omitted pig would assume the tablename to be an hdfs path 
> and the storage function would use the last component of the path as a table 
> name and output a warning.
> For details on why see jira issue: PIG-758
