Java, Cascading, Pipes - C++, Hive, Pig, Rhipe, Dumbo, Cascalog… which one of these should you use for writing Map Reduce code?
Antonio Piccolboni takes them up for a test:
At the end of this by necessity incomplete and unscientific language and library comparison, there is a winner and there isn’t. There isn’t because language comparison is always multidimensional and subjective but also because the intended applications are very different. On the other hand, looking for a general purpose, moderately elegant, not necessarily most efficient, not necessarily mature language for exploration purposes, Rhipe seems to fit the bill pretty nicely.
