Santhosh Srinivasan commented on PIG-796:


You are generalizing a specific problem. Pig can convert a byte array to an 
integer and then to a string as long as the byte array is convertible to an 
integer. The problem being discussed is for bytes that come out of a Map. The 
title of this jira is incorrect as I have pointed out in my first comment.

Regarding ClassCastExceptions, Pig fails and the script aborts; Here, I am 
excluding less than a handful of cases where we do not bail out.
