>                 Key: AVRO-1331
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-1331
>             Project: Avro
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: java
>            Reporter: Jeremy Kahn
>            Assignee: Doug Cutting
>             Fix For: 1.7.5

> For some cases where we encode Avro data with Avro 1.7.4, it is not readable with Avro
1.7.5-SNAPSHOT post AVRO-1295: the Java decoder is unable to discover the root definitions
> Among the properties of (some) schemas that trigger this failure:
> - an explicit empty string in the root namespace and
> - uses other namespaces elsewhere in the schema, 
> - has a recursive reference to the root
> A sample schema and a sample datafile with one example encoded with that schema are attached.
 
> This datafile cannot be read with Java deserializers (and I believe that the schema cannot
be parsed by the Java schema parser).
