Subject [jira] [Commented] (AVRO-1325) Enhanced Schema Builder API
Date Thu, 16 May 2013 20:17:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-1325?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13659923#comment-13659923

Scott Carey commented on AVRO-1325:

The field syntax could have shortcuts too -- since the FieldsBuilder currently has only two
methods (name() and endRecord()), we could add a few shortcut methods for the most common
use cases.

Why have type() and type(Schema)?
Schema person = new Schema.Parser().parse(Person.avsc);  // or lookup from schema repo

Schema job = new SchemaBuilder.record("Job").fields()

Schema meeting = new SchemaBuilder.record("Meeting").fields()

{quote}Error type is missing, but this can be easily added.{quote}  
I wondered what to do here, since Error is for Protocols only, perhaps add it when we add
a ProtocolBuilder or extend SchemaBuilder to support protocols?
