I too installed PigPen_0.7.5.jar under Helios, with Hadoop 0.20.2, Pig
0.8.0, and Windows Vista. After a -clean start of Eclipse I saw four
traces of PigPen within Eclipse: A 'Launch pig job' button, a 'Kill
the pig job' button, a PigPen entry under Window->Preferences, and
syntax highlighting in .pig files.
Unfortunately, the 'Launch pig job' button seemingly does
nothing. Nothing appears in the console window. I also don't see a Pig
perspective, or the special editor with the three tabs at the bottom
(text, graph, etc.).
In the Window-
>Preferences->PigPen I added JobConf properties under
two keys: ConfigurationPath, and configuration.path. I saw both in
various pages on the Web. I set both values to ...Pigtrunk/conf.
My 'Pig jar location' field is set to ...Pigtrunk/pig.jar
In ...Pigtrunk/conf I have pig.properties, and I also placed copies of
the (default) Hadoop config files core-site.xml, hdfs-site.xml, and
mapred-site.xml from ...Hadooptrunk/conf.
Is there any debugging/logging I can do to help solve this problem?
For now I'm mostly just after executing scripts within Eclipse (as
opposed to the visual programming tools).
