Re: Getting errors with BinSedesTuple in my storefunc
Bytearray datatype also represents the 'unkown' type. Ie if pig does not know the type for a field, it uses the bytearray type. In such cases the actual object will not be an instance of DataByteArray.
I am wondering if in the storefunc, you are casting an 'unkown' type (which happens to be a tuple), into DataByteArray.  Can you check if pig is doing the right thing by returning a Tuple in this case ? (BinSedesTuple implements Tuple interface).

I am going through a lot of processing with my data and then I reformat it to go back into my data store using the storefunc.  I store it out to hdfs and it visually looks just fine.  However when I try to persist it, I'm getting an exception that it can't cast one of the values from org.apache.pig.data.BinSedesTuple to org.apache.pig.data.DataByteArray.  I had been assuming that the value would have been a DataByteArray (in my storefunc) and it looks from the javadocs of BinSedesTuple that it's a type only used for intermediate processing.  So I'm just wondering - is there any way I should convert this manually or is there something wrong?
