It has been a long term goal for Gora to support tools which enable easier data processing workflow implementations across Hadoop. Cascading is one of the processing API's which has been on the radar for Gora from inception into the Apache Incubator and would be an excellent addition to the project, carving the way for adoption of Pig etc. Although it is obviously beneficial to be able to think MapReduce, tools like Cascading are key to lowering the barrier to adoption for Gora users who wish to utilise MR through the Gora API.
