Subject [jira] [Commented] (AVRO-1368) String schema accepts any Java object, and converts it with toString()
Date Tue, 27 Aug 2013 22:47:52 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-1368?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13751832#comment-13751832

Christophe Taton commented on AVRO-1368:

I don't have enough context to make a reasonable guess here.
>From a generic API perspective, this becomes an opaque field in the form of
a java String.

I'm referring to this conversion:
 - where an Avro int is expected, I can write int, long, float, double, any
subclass of Number, and it will be silently encoded as the truncated
integer value.
 - where an Avro long is expected, I can only write a long/java.lang.Long
and nothing else (int/java.lang.Integer) is rejected, for example.
