Adding the Datetime Type as a Primitive for Pig

by Zhijie Shen for Apache Software Foundation

Apache Pig is a platform for analyzing large data sets based on Hadoop. Currently Pig does not support the primitive datetime type, which is a desired feature to be implemented. In this proposal, I explain my plan to implement the primitive datetime type, including the details of my solution and schedule. Additionally, I briefly introduce my background and the motivation of applying GSoC'12.
