ERROR 1066: Unable to open iterator for alias- PIG

Expert Contributor

I have been facing this issue from long time.

I tried to solve this but i couldn't.

I need some experts advice to solve this.

I am trying to load a sample tweets json file.

sample.json;-

{"filter_level":"low","retweeted":false,"in_reply_to_screen_name":"FilmFan","truncated":false,"lang":"en","in_reply_to_status_id_str":null,"id":689085590822891521,"in_reply_to_user_id_str":"6048122","timestamp_ms":"1453125782100","in_reply_to_status_id":null,"created_at":"Mon Jan 18 14:03:02 +0000 2016","favorite_count":0,"place":null,"coordinates":null,"text":"@filmfan hey its time for you guys follow @acadgild To #AchieveMore and participate in contest Win Rs.500 worth vouchers","contributors":null,"geo":null,"entities":{"symbols":[],"urls":[],"hashtags":[{"text":"AchieveMore","indices":[56,68]}],"user_mentions":[{"id":6048122,"name":"Tanya","indices":[0,8],"screen_name":"FilmFan","id_str":"6048122"},{"id":2649945906,"name":"ACADGILD","indices":[42,51],"screen_name":"acadgild","id_str":"2649945906"}]},"is_quote_status":false,"source":"<a href=\"https://about.twitter.com/products/tweetdeck\" rel=\"nofollow\">TweetDeck<\/a>","favorited":false,"in_reply_to_user_id":6048122,"retweet_count":0,"id_str":"689085590822891521","user":{"location":"India ","default_profile":false,"profile_background_tile":false,"statuses_count":86548,"lang":"en","profile_link_color":"94D487","profile_banner_url":"https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_banners/197865769/1436198000","id":197865769,"following":null,"protected":false,"favourites_count":1002,"profile_text_color":"000000","verified":false,"description":"Proud Indian, Digital Marketing Consultant,Traveler, Foodie, Adventurer, Data Architect, Movie Lover, Namo Fan","contributors_enabled":false,"profile_sidebar_border_color":"000000","name":"Bahubali","profile_background_color":"000000","created_at":"Sat Oct 02 17:41:02 +0000 2010","default_profile_image":false,"followers_count":4467,"profile_image_url_https":"https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/664486535040000000/GOjDUiuK_normal.jpg","geo_enabled":true,"profile_background_image_url":"http://abs.twimg.com/images/themes/theme1/bg.png","profile_background_image_url_https":"https://abs.twimg.com/images/themes/theme1/bg.png","follow_request_sent":null,"url":null,"utc_offset":19800,"time_zone":"Chennai","notifications":null,"profile_use_background_image":false,"friends_count":810,"profile_sidebar_fill_color":"000000","screen_name":"Ashok_Uppuluri","id_str":"197865769","profile_image_url":"http://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/664486535040000000/GOjDUiuK_normal.jpg","listed_count":50,"is_translator":false}}


I have tried to load this json file using ELEPHANT BIRD

script:-

REGISTER json-simple-1.1.1.jar 
REGISTER elephant-bird-2.2.3.jar 
REGISTER guava-11.0.2.jar 
REGISTER avro-1.7.7.jar
REGISTER piggybank-0.12.0.jar


twitter = LOAD 'sample.json' USING com.twitter.elephantbird.pig.load.JsonLoader();

B = foreach twitter generate (chararray)$0#'created_at' as created_at,(chararray)$0#'id' as id,(chararray)$0#'id_str' as id_str,(chararray)$0#'text' as text,(chararray)$0#'source' as source,com.twitter.elephantbird.pig.piggybank.JsonStringToMap($0#'entities') as entities,(boolean)$0#'favorited' as favorited;

describe B;


OUTPUT:-

B: {created_at: chararray,id: chararray,id_str: chararray,text: chararray,source: chararray,entitis: map[chararray],favorited: boolean}

But when I tried to DUMP B the follwoing error has occured

ERROR org.apache.pig.tools.grunt.Grunt - ERROR 1066: Unable to open iterator for alias B

I am providing the complete logs here.

And please give a clarification on how to use jar files.

And what are the versions to use.

There is soo much of confusion for me.

Someone says use Elephant Bird, and Someone says use AVRO.

Please help.

Re: ERROR 1066: Unable to open iterator for alias- PIG

Issue of jar version imcompatibility.

You need to use the following newer versions of elephant bird (and not the older version)

REGISTER elephant-bird-core-4.1.jar 
REGISTER elephant-bird-pig-4.1.jar 
REGISTER elephant-bird-hadoop-compat-4.1.jar

I tested it with your code and sample and it works.

You can get the jars at:

http://www.java2s.com/Code/JarDownload/elephant/elephant-bird-core-4.1.jar.zip http://www.java2s.com/Code/JarDownload/elephant/elephant-bird-pig-4.1.jar.zip http://www.java2s.com/Code/JarDownload/elephant/elephant-bird-hadoop-compat-4.1.jar.zip

Regarding DESCRIBE working but DUMP causing the issue: DUMP runs the map-reduce program and DESCRIBE does not.
