Subject [jira] [Commented] (AVRO-1173) C++ API for dynamic reading/writing based on schema
Date Wed, 26 Sep 2012 17:45:09 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-1173?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13463977#comment-13463977

Vivek Nadkarni commented on AVRO-1173:

It would be great if you could create a JIRA entry for the issues you fixed with the Windows
build, and upload a patch file with all your changes in it. These changes would be merged
by one of the committers (usually Douglas Creager for Avro-C) before the next release. 

Also, does anyone on the list know how the automatic build servers work for Avro? Would it
be possible to add a Windows build for Avro-C, so we could catch issues more quickly when
things break.

>                 Key: AVRO-1173
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-1173
>             Project: Avro
>          Issue Type: Wish
>          Components: c++
>            Reporter: Stefan Langer
> When I started looking at Avro I hoped it would offer some API to read values by name/id
(or at least get name/id of datum while iterating over all entries).
> When looking at examples for C: http://avro.apache.org/docs/1.6.3/api/c/index.html#_examples
> ... or some Java examples
> There are getters/setters which have name-arguments, and there are Record-objects constructed
from schema which help reading/writing data.
> While testing the C++ API, I couldn't find a way to do so with it!
> I'm still not sure if I'm missing some part of the API or if it is just not yet part
of the C++ Interface.
> About C API: I could not use it, because it is C99 focused, so it can't be compiled on
our VS2008 ... For the C++ API it's just some tiny tweaks to get it running.
> About Generator: I'm not interested in generating code (if I would be there are enough
alternatives to Avro ...)
