             Summary: ComplexWriter should initialize nested writers when container vector
is already populated
                 Key: ARROW-326
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ARROW-326
             Project: Apache Arrow
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Steven Phillips
            Assignee: Steven Phillips


It's possible and sometimes useful to use reuse a nested vector that was populated in a previous
ComplexWriter. The new ComplexWriter should be aware of the fields that are present in the
vector.

As it is right now, if a particular column were determined to be a specific type (or a union
type), but the new writer finds a new type, the original type may be thrown out. What should
happen is that the type should be promoted to union (or have a new subtype added to the union
field).
