Re: Join with greater/less then condition
Pig can only do equi-joins.  Theta joins are hard in MapReduce.  So the way to do this is do the equi-join and then filter afterwards.  This will not create significant additional cost since the join results will be filtered before being materialized to disk.

C = Join table_a on user_id, title_id, table_b on user_id, title_id;
D = filter C by table_a::timestamp > table_b::timestamp;
