Date Wed, 03 Jun 2015 16:49:09 GMT
Mike Rodriguez created AVRO-1676:
------------------------------------

             Summary: Do not treat enum symbols as immutable when deep copying
                 Key: AVRO-1676
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-1676
             Project: Avro
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: java
    Affects Versions: 1.7.7
            Reporter: Mike Rodriguez


Enum types should be supported in GenericData.deepCopy() so that we can convert from (in memory)
generics records to specifics records.
Without this fix in place, it is non-trivial to attempt to create specific records from generic
records if they may happen to have any nested enum data types.

This issue has already been pointed out by Doug Cutting which can be referenced at \[1] and
\[2].
In \[2] specifically, Doug proposed the change that would fix this issue.
