Hi Ronald,

Sorry for the late response.
I'm afraid not.

Illustrate is a strong feature that has not been supported yet on
Pig-on-tez or Pig-on-spark.
We need to revive this effort and start looking at this feature again.

As part of Illustrate?  No.

If you have suggestion on how we can make this feature better, appreciate
if you could file a new jira.

Thanks.
