Subject [jira] [Created] (AVRO-1324) Avro-C: namespace lookup and inherited namespaces
Date Tue, 07 May 2013 11:47:19 GMT
Ben Walsh created AVRO-1324:

             Summary: Avro-C: namespace lookup and inherited namespaces
                 Key: AVRO-1324
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-1324
             Project: Avro
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: c
            Reporter: Ben Walsh

It seems that the C version of Avro doesn't resolve fully-qualified type names, and it doesn't
understand inherited namespaces.

For example this doesn't work:

{"type": "record", "namespace": "x", "name": "Y", "fields": [
  {"name": "e", "type": {"type": "record", "name": "Z", "fields": [
    {"name": "f", "type": "x.Z"}

It can't find the type "x.Z".

(this is similar to a Ruby problem https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-635).
