Thanks, Eli. I actually just read hdfs-245 before I saw your reply. So, as I understand, symlink is available by using some relevant patches, right? From what you mentioned, it seems to me that symlink support is quite stable as of now. Just curious, why not included in a recent hadoop release yet or will it be considered in the next release?

Symbolic links has been implemented  but are not yet available in a
Hadoop release. The implementation is only available to clients that
use the new FileContext API so clients like Hive need to be migrated
from using FileSystem to FileContext. This is currently being done in
Hadoop itself .

Is there a way to create symlink in hdfs? And does LOAD function in Pig follows such a link? Thanks!
