Apache Pig

Apache Pig is a high-level platform for creating programs that runs on Apache Hadoop. The language for this platform is called Pig Latin. Pig can execute its Hadoop jobs in MapReduce, Apache Tez, or Apache Spark. Pig Latin abstracts the programming from the Java MapReduce idiom into a notation which makes MapReduce programming high level, similar to that of SQL for relational database management systems. Pig Latin can be extended using user-defined functions which the user can write in Java, Python, JavaScript, Ruby or Groovy and then call directly from the language.
