I've added a condition in my pig script which shall use in case A field x and in case B field y.
(Schema.Version == 1 ? Field.x : Field.y) AS SomeField
The intention was to make my pig script future safe, because with the next schema (version != 1) the new "Field.y" is added and shall be used. When I run my script on the data with the "current" schema (version=1), I'm getting the following exception:
pig script failed to validate: org.apache.pig.impl.logicalLayer.FrontendException: ERROR 1128: Cannot find field y in …
Unfortunately it looks like pig is validating every field, even if it's not used/called?!
Thanks in advance!
