Subject [jira] [Updated] (AVRO-1291) Python library missing strict JSON encode/decoe
Date Mon, 22 Dec 2014 23:43:13 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-1291?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Sergei Kuzmin updated AVRO-1291:
    Affects Version/s: 1.7.7
         Release Note: 
This patch modifies DatumReader and DatumWriter to allow memory serialization/deserialization
to plain format (already supported), strict JSON (json.dumps produces valid strict avro json),
and linkedin Pegasus format (you can attach attach json.dumps(myobject) while making calls
to rest.li servers)

               Status: Patch Available  (was: Open)

Now you may supply avro.HINTS_NONE (default), HINTS_PEGASUS (Pegasus style de-/serialization),
and HINTS_ALL (strict JSON de-/serialization) to DatumReader/Writer

>    Affects Versions: 1.7.7
>            Reporter: Jeremy Kahn
> The Python Avro libraries don't actually have a proper JSON decoder or encoder, because
they don't handle the [type-hinting for unions|http://avro.apache.org/docs/current/spec.html#json_encoding]
> The Python {{avro.io}} library should provide a pair of {{StrictJsonEncoder,StrictJsonDecoder}}}
classes that correctly include (and decode) the type hints when the schema expects a union.
