Subject [jira] [Commented] (AVRO-1368) String schema accepts any Java object, and converts it with toString()
Date Tue, 27 Aug 2013 21:43:51 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-1368?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13751757#comment-13751757

Christophe Taton commented on AVRO-1368:

Adding SpecificDatumWriter.getSpecificData() seems reasonable on one hand, but not necessary
with what follows:
GenericDatumWriter/GenericData totally ignores the Stringable concept. Perhaps, the stringable
concept should be moved to GenericData instead?

Last question: is there a reason for Avro integer to accept any Java Number, and silently
convert/truncate them to Integer, while other Avro primitive types will require an exact class
match (eg. Avro long will require Java Long, and not accept Java Integer).
