Subject [jira] [Updated] (AVRO-1500) Unknown datum type exception during union type resolution (no short to int conversion).
Date Fri, 30 May 2014 10:05:02 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-1500?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Michael Pershyn updated AVRO-1500:
----------------------------------

    Attachment: AVRO-1500-ThriftData.patch

Agreed on arguments.
Implemented the fix in ThriftData through @Override getSchemaName.

> There is a conversion for values of type {{short}} (and other numeric types) if in the
schema they are declared as int:
> {code:title=/lang/java/avro/src/main/java/org/apache/avro/generic/GenericDatumWriter.java}
>  protected void write(Schema schema, Object datum, Encoder out)
>     throws IOException {
>     try {
>       switch (schema.getType()) {
>         // ...
>         case INT:     out.writeInt(((Number)datum).intValue()); break;
>         // ...
> {code}
> So, if a value of {{short}} type is passed to INT field, it will be converted and saved
as INT in avro.
> But, when there is next field in schema: 
> {code}
>  ["null",{"type":"int","thrift":"short"}] {code}
> which is a union with int in it, and short is passed in (lets say 5), then we are having
the next exception:
> {code}
> org.apache.avro.AvroRuntimeException: Unknown datum type: 5
> 	at org.apache.avro.generic.GenericData.getSchemaName(GenericData.java:593)
> 	at org.apache.avro.generic.GenericData.resolveUnion(GenericData.java:558)
> 	at org.apache.avro.generic.GenericDatumWriter.resolveUnion(GenericDatumWriter.java:144)

> {code}
> This happens because in {{org.apache.avro.generic.GenericData}} there is no check if
the passed object has a type of {{java.lang.Short}}, and it is not get converted then in {{write}}
method of {{GenericDatumWriter}}:
> {code:title=lang/java/avro/src/main/java/org/apache/avro/generic/GenericData.java}
> /** Return the schema full name for a datum.  Called by {@link
>    * #resolveUnion(Schema,Object)}. */
> protected String getSchemaName(Object datum) {
> /* ... */
> if (isInteger(datum))
>   return Type.INT.getName();
> if (isLong(datum))
>   return Type.LONG.getName();
>  if (isFloat(datum))
>  return Type.FLOAT.getName();
> if (isDouble(datum))
>   return Type.DOUBLE.getName();
>  if (isBoolean(datum))
>   return Type.BOOLEAN.getName();
> throw new AvroRuntimeException("Unknown datum type: "+datum);
> {code}
> This error initially occured during thrift to avro conversion, when thrift obj had optional
field of type i16.
> In thrift to avro schema converter, if the type is short in thrift (i16) it will be implicitly
converted to int in avro-schema, so the values should be converted as well. This is already
done if they are not in the union (not optional). Otherwise the exception is thrown.
> The snippet from schema conversion code is below:
> {code:title=lang/java/thrift/src/main/java/org/apache/avro/thrift/ThriftData.java}
> private Schema getSchema(FieldValueMetaData f) {
>   switch (f.type) {
>   /* ... */ 
>     case TType.I16:
>       Schema s = Schema.create(Schema.Type.INT);
>       s.addProp(THRIFT_PROP, "short");
>     return s;
>    /* ... */
> {code}
> Proposal is to add isShort check to generic data, as well as isShort method implementation:
> {code:title=lang/java/avro/src/main/java/org/apache/avro/generic/GenericData.java}
> protected String getSchemaName(Object datum) {
> // ..
> if (isInteger(datum) || isShort(datum))
>    return Type.INT.getName();
> // ..
> {code}
> or maybe even some kind of isNumeric method, so the behaviour will be same for INT fields
and INT fields that are in Union.
