> Lack of information on error in GenericData#getSchemaName

>                 Key: AVRO-1465
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-1465
>             Project: Avro
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: java
>            Reporter: Gabriel Reid
>            Priority: Minor
>         Attachments: AVRO-1465.patch
> When the type of a datum cannot be determined in GenericData#getSchemaName, an AvroRuntimeException
is thrown (correctly), and the message of the exception contains the string representation
of the datum.
> In the odd case that the datum is something that totally doesn't belong there, and it's
toString representation doesn't clearly show what it is, it's very difficult to determine
what the actual type of the error datum is.
> Including the class name of the unresolvable datum would make debugging situations like
this much easier.
