Trying to load the json file which is having null values in it by using elephant-bird JsonLoader.

json = LOAD 'sample.json' USING JsonLoader('created_at:chararray, id:chararray, id_str:chararray, text:chararray, source:chararray, in_reply_to_status_id:chararray, in_reply_to_status_id_str:chararray, in_reply_to_user_id:chararray, in_reply_to_user_id_str:chararray, in_reply_to_screen_name:chararray, geo:chararray, coordinates:chararray, place:chararray, contributors:chararray, is_quote_status:bytearray, retweet_count:long, favorite_count:chararray, entities:map[], favorited:bytearray, retweeted:bytearray, possibly_sensitive:bytearray, lang:chararray');
describe json;
dump json;

 

When I dump json,I am getting the following output and the worning

 

(Mon Aug 22 10:48:23 +0000 2016,767674772662607873,767674772662607873,google Image Result for Twitter Web Client,false,1234,12345,3214,43215,,,,,,,,,,,,,,)

WARN org.apache.pig.backend.hadoop.executionengine.mapReduceLayer.PigHadoopLogger - org.apache.pig.builtin.JsonLoader(UDF_WARNING_1): Bad record, returning null for {complete json}

 

By warning i guess it is getting NULL values.

So how can we load a Json which is having null values in it.

 

And I have tried in another way i.e

json = LOAD 'sample.json' USING com.twitter.elephantbird.pig.load.JsonLoader('created_at:chararray, id:chararray, id_str:chararray, text:chararray, source:chararray, in_reply_to_status_id:chararray, in_reply_to_status_id_str:chararray, in_reply_to_user_id:chararray, in_reply_to_user_id_str:chararray, in_reply_to_screen_name:chararray, geo:chararray, coordinates:chararray, place:chararray, contributors:chararray, is_quote_status:bytearray, retweet_count:long, favorite_count:chararray, entities:map[], favorited:bytearray, retweeted:bytearray, possibly_sensitive:bytearray, lang:chararray');describe json;

Output

Schema for json unknown.

 

 

Please suggest me.

 

Thanks.
