Subject [jira] [Commented] (AVRO-2069) Use primitive fields in generated getters & setters in Java code
Date Fri, 01 Sep 2017 13:13:01 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-2069?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16150481#comment-16150481

Sean Busbey commented on AVRO-2069:

we'll need to flag this as an incompatible change, but I agree that it's a great improvement.

Normally users who rely on the specific compiler are performance sensitive. Do we have any
idea if the use of boxed object here was a discussed design decision? The only reason I can
think of to use them is it allows returning null, but that won't be the case if we're directly
referencing the primitives anyways.

> Currently, for primitive types (such as int, long, etc) generated getters and setters
return and accept java.lang.* boxed (while fields actually holds primitive values). This is
inefeccient and produces code boilerplate.
> Changed this behaviour in pull request:
