Subject [jira] [Commented] (AVRO-1146) Can't use ReflectData to get schema when the type has a BigDecimal or BigInteger field
Date Wed, 05 Sep 2012 18:07:07 GMT

Alexandre Normand commented on AVRO-1146:
-----------------------------------------

I agree. My patch didn't cover any of the other subclasses of Number and that's likely to
be helpful to others.

I'm trying to get the Schema for has a field of type BigDecimal. Because BigDecimal extends
java.lang.Number, we try to create a primitive schema for it but fail doing so with the following
error:
> *{{org.apache.avro.AvroRuntimeException: Not a Specific class: class java.math.BigDecimal}}*
> I'm attaching a unit test that shows the problem with a basic type that has a single
BigDecimal field.
> This basically also applied to all subclasses of java.lang.Number that are not primitives.
