Method Detail

exec

public String exec(Tuple input)
            throws IOException
Description copied from class: EvalFunc
This callback method must be implemented by all subclasses. This is the method that will be invoked on every Tuple of a given dataset. Since the dataset may be divided up in a variety of ways the programmer should not make assumptions about state that is maintained between invocations of this method.

Specified by:
exec in class EvalFunc<String>
Parameters:
input - the Tuple to be processed.
Returns:
result, of type T.
Throws:
IOException

outputSchema

public Schema outputSchema(Schema input)
Description copied from class: EvalFunc
Report the schema of the output of this UDF. Pig will make use of this in error checking, optimization, and planning. The schema of input data to this UDF is provided.

Overrides:
outputSchema in class EvalFunc<String>
Parameters:
input - Schema of the input
Returns:
Schema of the output
