Subject [jira] [Commented] (AVRO-1358) internal version of jansson exports the jansson symbols which collide with json-c and jansson libraries

ASF subversion and git services commented on AVRO-1358:
-------------------------------------------------------

Commit 1551936 from dcreager@apache.org in branch 'avro/trunk'
[ https://svn.apache.org/r1551936 ]

AVRO-1358. C: Hide symbols that aren't part of the public API.

Right now we're doing this via GCC visibility pragmas.  The only symbols that
should be exported by libavro.so begin with `avro_` or `AVRO_`.

>             Project: Avro
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: c
>    Affects Versions: 1.7.4
>         Environment: linux

> The 1.7.x version of AVRO includes an "internal" copy of jansson library, but it also
exports all of the jansson symbols which will collide with other libraries. The symbol 'json_object_get'
will collide with the json-c library and all of the 'json_*' symbols collide with the external
jansson library.
> If you don't want to have an external dependency on 'jansson' then it seems that the
symbols will need to have a hidden visibility or some other mechanism to keep them from being
exported with the AVRO library.
> As a temporary solution we have wrapped the internal jansson functions with this so they
are hidden:
> #pragma GCC visibility push(hidden)
> json_function()
> #pragma GCC visibility pop
> Many other solutions exist. I don't see that having an external dependency is such a
drawback, as many other open source packages have dependencies on other open source packages,
but any solution would be appreciated.
> Thanks!
