Subject [jira] [Updated] (AVRO-1535) permit aliases to null namespace
Date Mon, 30 Jun 2014 22:23:25 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-1535?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Doug Cutting updated AVRO-1535:

    Status: Patch Available  (was: Open)

Some tools are not namespace-aware, so it's important to be able to interoperate with data
whose schema has no namespace.  A dot-prefixed should either refer to the null namespace or
be an error.  The former interpretation resolves this issue, so should be preferred.

I'll commit this soon unless there are objections.

> It is impossible to specify an alias to a record name that does not have a namespace
from a record name that does have an alias.  This is because aliases without a specified namespace
are assumed to be in the namespace of the record that contains the alias.
