Re: String Representation of DataBag and its Schema
Thank you for your reply.

The problem is I cannot find a methodology to go from a String
representation of a complex data type to a nested Object of pig DataTypes.
I looked over the pig 0.10.1 docs, but cannot find a way to go from String
and Schema to pig DataType Object.

For context, I am generating these Strings for my own JUnit testing of
other UDFs.  Currently, for complex types, I have to generate each nesting
from Tuple and DataBag factories, append data, and next them manually.  For
larger unit tests, this process becomes unwieldy (hundreds of lines per
method, non-dynamic), and it would be much simpler to go directly from a
String and a Schema to a DataBag Object for UDF testing (few lines of code,
easily modifiable).
