Ashutosh Chauhan commented on PIG-928:

Though good learning from this test is BSF is not slower then direct bindings 
(need additional verifications though..) So, this feature could be implemented 
in lot less code and complexity using BSF as oppose to using different direct 
bindings for different languages.  On the other hand, only useful language BSF 
supports currently is Ruby. Not sure how many people using Pig will also be 
interested in groovy, javascript etc.( other languages supported by BSF ).

> It should be possible to write UDFs in scripting languages such as python, 
> ruby, etc.  This frees users from needing to compile Java, generate a jar, 
> etc.  It also opens Pig to programmers who prefer scripting languages over 
> Java.
