Subject RE: reflected char array returning null package.
Date Tue, 01 Dec 2009 14:15:59 GMT
Thanks Hiral, that is the feeling i'm getting.
 
But this test came right out of an Avro unit test that serialized an
object containing Strings?
 
If it's true that reflection does not support Strings, then is there
some other way to use the Avro to support serialization of arbitrary
Java object, especially basic object types like Strings that are so
pervasive?
 
If there are constraints on the type of objects that are supported by
Avro, is there any doc with details?
 
In the absence of any documentation or help, i will have to drop Avro
for now.
 
Marko.

Not sure if 1.2 supports strings but 1.0 did not support String for
reflection.  Try using Utf8 instead.

	It almost seems as though java.lang.String is not supported?
But I got
	this code from an avro unit test (TestReflect.java) that
serialized
	objects containing Strings?
	
	Thanks.
	
	Marko.
