We are using Pig-Phoenix loader to load data into a table. Initially, we created some columns as TinyInt and SmallInt in our Phoenix table. But, Pig does not have TinyInt and SmallInt datatypes, so we were forced to convert all TinyInt and SmallInt columns into INTEGER.
Is there a way/trick we can still use TinyInt and SmallInt in Phoenix table while using Pig-Phoenix loader?

If currently there is no way to do it, can we enhance Pig-Phoenix loader to support TinyInt and SmallInt?

Thanks & Regards,
