Raghu Angadi commented on PIG-833:
Will surely look at Hive's storage layer and SerDe. I will be able to better
comment on specifics once I get better handle. In the mean while I will attach
the work that is already been done on Zebra.
This is currently a contrib in PIG. Based on these experiences we could
probably provide a common storage layer more widely suitable for multiple
Hadoop related projects.
> Storage access layer
> Key: PIG-833
> URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-833
> Project: Pig
> Issue Type: New Feature
> Reporter: Jay Tang
> Attachments: hadoop20.jar.bz2
> A layer is needed to provide a high level data access abstraction and a
> tabular view of data in Hadoop, and could free Pig users from implementing
> their own data storage/retrieval code. This layer should also include a
> columnar storage format in order to provide fast data projection,
> CPU/space-efficient data serialization, and a schema language to manage
> physical storage metadata. Eventually it could also support predicate
> pushdown for further performance improvement. Initially, this layer could be
> a contrib project in Pig and become a hadoop subproject later on.
