Subject [jira] [Commented] (AVRO-1021) Fix a few name-related imperfections in Avro spec
Date Wed, 08 Feb 2012 18:26:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-1021?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13203813#comment-13203813

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

bq. I don't think any implementation currently supports use-before-define, does it?

It would sure be nice if there were a few shared folders that every language tested schemas
and protocols against.  For example, if there was a 'valid schemas' and 'invalid schemas'
folder that all languages were expected to pass / fail against, then someone could test every
language by adding to this folder without having to have much knowledge about any language
at all.  Then we could just add a use-before-define schema to the invalid schemas folder,
and find out if any languages support it.

> 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).
