Jeremy Hanna commented on PIG-1314:

I think this would be nice also when outputting from pig scripts using DBStorage to an RDBMS - to be able to serialize properly to the db's timestamp or date type (without extra UDF work).
Add DateTime Support to Pig

Key: PIG-1314
Project: Pig
Issue Type: Bug
Components: data
Affects Versions: 0.7.0
Reporter: Russell Jurney
Assignee: Russell Jurney
Original Estimate: 672h
Remaining Estimate: 672h

Hadoop/Pig are primarily used to parse log data, and most logs have a timestamp component. Therefore Pig should support dates as a primitive.
Can someone familiar with adding types to pig comment on how hard this is? We're looking at doing this, rather than use UDFs. Is this a patch that would be accepted?
