Subject [jira] [Commented] (AVRO-1063) Ruby client should use multi_json rather than being locked down to yajl
Date Wed, 18 Dec 2013 21:38:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-1063?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13852184#comment-13852184
] 

Doug Cutting commented on AVRO-1063:
------------------------------------

I'd consider it compatible if the gem update also added the new dependencies.  I don't know
enough about gem to say whether this is the case.  I know that in order to build & test
this I had to manually install multi-json.  But maybe gem dependencies aren't automatic at
build time but are at install time.

> The avro ruby client uses yajl for JSON serialization which is just one of many suitable
JSON implementations for ruby. The multi_json gem provides a wrapper for JSON serialization
selecting the fastest library available (Oj is now even faster than Yajl) and falling back
to a pure ruby implementation bundled with multi_json. Requiring yajl also precludes the ruby
gem from being used under jruby since it requires a C extension.
