Subject [jira] Commented: (AVRO-36) binary default values do not decode base64
Date Tue, 02 Jun 2009 04:00:08 GMT

Arvind Jayaprakash commented on AVRO-36:
----------------------------------------

A more elementary question is the rationale for using base64 to encode the binary data. It
seems to offer neither storage nor computational advantages. Come to think of it, I like the
spec the way it is i.e. length + actual bytes

> The specification says that default values for binary data are base64 encoded text, but
the Java implementation uses the raw bytes of the textual value, and does not perform base64
decoded as specified.
