Subject Re: Shared schemas for testing?
Date Thu, 19 Nov 2009 17:29:12 GMT
Sounds good to me, having more interoperability testing is a must IMO.

To that end I've been fooling with an avro schema fuzzer which you can 
glance at here: http://bit.ly/cDHST

It's no where near ready yet, in particular I'm currently fuzzing at the 
protocol level and I should probably be doing things at the schema level 
(is there a way to serialize RPC messages directly to disk, ala thrift, 
would that be difficult?) The current implementation works by generating 
a schema, then parsing that schema in both python (directly) and java 
(via call to specificcompiler and then javac).
