  extended by org.apache.pig.EvalFunc<org.joda.time.DateTime>
      extended by org.apache.pig.builtin.ToDate

public class ToDate
extends EvalFunc<org.joda.time.DateTime>

ToDate converts the ISO or the customized string or the Unix timestamp to the DateTime object.

ToDate is overloaded.

Syntax:
DateTime ToDate(Long millis).
Input:
the milliseconds.
Output:
the DateTime object.
Syntax:
DateTime ToDate(String dtStr).
Input:
the ISO format date time string.
Output:
the DateTime object.
Syntax:
DateTime ToDate(String dtStr, String format).
Input:
dtStr: the string that represents a date time.
format: the format string.
Output:
the DateTime object.
Syntax:
DateTime ToDate(String dtStr, String format, String timezone).
Input:
dtStr: the string that represents a date time.
format: the format string.
timezone: the timezone string.
Output:
the DateTime object.

Method Detail

exec

public org.joda.time.DateTime 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<org.joda.time.DateTime>
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.

The default implementation interprets the OutputSchema annotation, if one is present. Otherwise, it returns null (no known output schema).

Overrides:
outputSchema in class EvalFunc<org.joda.time.DateTime>
Parameters:
input - Schema of the input
Returns:
Schema of the output

getArgToFuncMapping

public List<FuncSpec> getArgToFuncMapping()
                                   throws FrontendException
Description copied from class: EvalFunc
Allow a UDF to specify type specific implementations of itself. For example, an implementation of arithmetic sum might have int and float implementations, since integer arithmetic performs much better than floating point arithmetic. Pig's typechecker will call this method and using the returned list plus the schema of the function's input data, decide which implementation of the UDF to use.

Overrides:
getArgToFuncMapping in class EvalFunc<org.joda.time.DateTime>
Returns:
A List containing FuncSpec objects representing the EvalFunc class which can handle the inputs corresponding to the schema in the objects. Each FuncSpec should be constructed with a schema that describes the input for that implementation. For example, the sum function above would return two elements in its list:
  1. FuncSpec(this.getClass().getName(), new Schema(new Schema.FieldSchema(null, DataType.DOUBLE)))
  2. FuncSpec(IntSum.getClass().getName(), new Schema(new Schema.FieldSchema(null, DataType.INTEGER)))
This would indicate that the main implementation is used for doubles, and the special implementation IntSum is used for ints.
Throws:
FrontendException

extractDateTimeZone

public static org.joda.time.DateTimeZone extractDateTimeZone(String dtStr)

extractDateTime

public static org.joda.time.DateTime extractDateTime(String dtStr)
