Unable to set Custom Job Name using the -Dmapred.job.name parameter

                 Key: PIG-1124
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-1124
             Project: Pig
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: impl
    Affects Versions: 0.6.0
            Reporter: Viraj Bhat
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 0.6.0

As a Hadoop user I want to control the Job name for my analysis via the command 
line using the following construct::

java -cp pig.jar:$HADOOP_HOME/conf -Dmapred.job.name=hadoop_junkie 
org.apache.pig.Main broken.pig

-Dmapred.job.name should normally set my Hadoop Job name, but somehow during 
the formation of the job.xml in Pig this information is lost and the job name 
turns out to be:


The current workaround seems to be wiring it in the script itself, using the 
following ( or using parameter substitution).

set job.name 'my job'
