Lingual 1.2

We are happy to announce that Lingual 1.2 is now publicly available.

The purpose of Lingual is to ease migration of SQL based workloads onto Hadoop, and to simplify integration with Hadoop through standards based APIs. Lingual provides an ANSI SQL interface on Cascading for Apache Hadoop.

Lingual 1.2 includes both critical bug fixes, updated to support Cascading 2.6, and improved support for Driven. It is highly recommended that users upgrade to this release.

What’s New:

  • Fixed issue where c.l.f.SQLPlanner could execute a flow instead of just planning it
  • Fixed issue in shell wrapper where a previously set LINGUAL_CLASSPATH would be lost and therefore the cascading-service.properties file could not be loaded by setting LINGUAL_CLASSPATH before running lingual shell
  • Several changes to reduce memory footprint and help GC in long running processes with many flows
