    AVRO-2075: Add option to report possible data loss in SchemaCompatibility


> Allow SchemaCompatibility to report possibly lossy conversions
> --------------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: AVRO-2075
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-2075
>             Project: Avro
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>    Affects Versions: 1.7.7, 1.8.2
>         Environment: Java
>            Reporter: Anders Sundelin
>            Priority: Minor
>         Attachments: 0001-AVRO-2075-Add-option-to-report-possible-data-loss-in.patch
> It is stated in the Avro spec that int and long values are promotable to floats and doubles.
> However, numeric promotions to floats are lossy (losing precision), as is long promotion
to double.
> It is suggested that the SchemaCompatibility class is updated to be able to flag conversions
that have the possibility to be lossy as errors. The attached patch does just that, by adding
a new boolean flag (allowDataLoss), preserving backwards compatibility by defaulting this
flag to true.
> Testcases illustrating the problem has been added to the unit test class TestReadingWritingDataInEvolvedSchemas
