Subject [jira] [Commented] (AVRO-872) Allow interdependancies across IDL schema imports
Date Wed, 10 Aug 2011 20:55:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-872?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13082669#comment-13082669
] 

Scott Carey commented on AVRO-872:
----------------------------------

Two things block me from using AvroIDL:

* I started maintaining and using Avro schemas before it existed, so it is natural for developers
on my project to use the JSON form, not AvroIDL.
* AvroIDL only supports protocols.  I only use schemas.
