Subject [jira] [Updated] (AVRO-838) Support reading of files created with Avro 1.5 that use invalid characters in field and record names
Date Thu, 16 Jun 2011 10:03:47 GMT

Doug Cutting updated AVRO-838:
------------------------------

    Fix Version/s: 1.5.2
         Assignee: Doug Cutting
           Status: Patch Available  (was: Open)

The current patch disables all name validation for schemas read from data files.  This makes
Java tolerant in what it accepts from other Avro implementations, including older versions
of Java.

> Avro 1.4 had a bug that let users create schemas with invalid characters in field and
record names.
> For example, the '-' character used to be allowed in field and record names, but Avro
1.5 will now fail.
> We need some kind of compatibility mode that supports schemas with invalid characters,
so that existing files created with Avro 1.4 can be read by Avro 1.5.
