Jeff Hammerbacher commented on PIG-823: --------------------------------------- Hey, Great to see Owl source! I've filed a ticket over on the Hive project (https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-762) to see if we can find some common ground between Pig and Hive's metadata needs; it would be great to have a single metadata service for all of Hadoop's structured data manipulation tools. If you're interested, please chime in there (or open a ticket here? Whatever seems sane to you).

The initial goal is to provide a fairly generic, low level > abstraction that any user or application on HDFS can use to store an retrieve > metadata. Over time a higher level abstractions closely tied to particular > applications or tools can be developed. > Over time, it would make sense for the metadata service to become a > subproject within Hadoop. For now, the proposal is to make it a contrib to > Pig since Pig SQL is likely to be the first user of the system. -- This message is automatically generated by JIRA. - You can reply to this email to add a comment to the issue online.
