Subject [jira] [Commented] (AVRO-1021) Fix a few name-related imperfections in Avro spec
Date Wed, 08 Feb 2012 07:04:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-1021?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13203326#comment-13203326
] 

Scott Carey commented on AVRO-1021:
-----------------------------------

* There is a minor typo:  "wdepth-first"

* Implementations that previously allowed for the previously lax restrictions may need to
continue to support that for some use cases.  For example, if there is an Avro Data File or
old schema that used a name before defining it that currently works, there must be a way for
future versions to continue to work. 

If we decide to accept this change, we should first provide an integration test for all languages
that checks conformance, for those languages that previously supported 'declare before use'
that there is still a mechanism that can parse such schemas.

> Require names are defined before used; disallow multiple definitions of names; clarify
that name-equality is case sensitive (for type names, field names, and enum symbols).
