Bug in GenericData#resolveUnion when resolving union of null and array

                 Key: AVRO-966
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-966
             Project: Avro
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: java
    Affects Versions: 1.6.1
            Reporter: Vyacheslav Zholudev

I have a simple avro schema from which I generate an avro specific object:
{"type": "record",
  "name": "org.company.Test",
  "fields": [
    { "name": "arr","type": ["null", {"type": "array","items": "float" }], "default": null
Then a simple piece of code to reproduce a bug:
  Test test = new Test();
  List<Float> list = new ArrayList<Float>();

  DataFileWriter<Test> myWriter = new DataFileWriter<Test>(new ReflectDatumWriter(test.getSchema()));
  File f = new File("/tmp/test.avro");
  myWriter.create(test.getSchema(), f);

I get an exception:
Exception in thread "main" org.apache.avro.file.DataFileWriter$AppendWriteException: org.apache.avro.UnresolvedUnionException:
Not in union ["null",{"type":"array","items":"float"}]: [1.1, 2.2]
	at org.apache.avro.file.DataFileWriter.append(DataFileWriter.java:261)
        <my code>
Caused by: org.apache.avro.UnresolvedUnionException: Not in union ["null",{"type":"array","items":"float"}]:

	at org.apache.avro.generic.GenericDatumWriter.write(GenericDatumWriter.java:57)
	at org.apache.avro.file.DataFileWriter.append(DataFileWriter.java:255)

My investigation showed that in {{GenericData#resolveUnion}} method {{getSchemaName()}} is
called. And the latter method when checks whether {{datum}} is a record, succeeds. Why it
happens boils down to the fact that in {{ReflectData#createSchema}} an "if"-body under case
{{(type instanceof ParameterizedType)}} is not executed.

I can supply more details if needed. Or explain in a clear way if I didn't manage to.
