      Fragment Replicate Join(FRJ) is useful when we want a join between a huge table and a very small table (fitting in memory small) and the join doesn't expand the data by much. The idea is to distribute the processing of the huge files by fragmenting it and replicating the small file to all machines receiving a fragment of the huge file. Because of the availability of the entire small file, the join becomes a trivial task without needing any break in the pipeline. Exhaustive test have done to determine the improvement we get out of FRJ. Here are the details:

      The patch makes changes to parts of the code where new operators are introduced. Currently, when a new operator is introduced, its alias is not set. For schema computation I have modified this behaviour to set the alias of the new operator to that of its predecessor. The logical side of the patch mimics the cogroup behavior as join syntax closely resembles that of cogroup. Currently, this patch doesn't have support for joins other than inner joins. The rest of the code has been documented.
