Subject Object Schema Resolution
Date Tue, 01 Feb 2011 22:31:52 GMT
Can the Java implementation of Avro do schema resolution without deserializing?  For example,
can it convert a generic object to a specific object with a different schema?  It seems possible:
the specific class contains the reader’s schema, and the generic object contains the writer’s
schema and data.  But I don’t see how to do it with Java, without serializing and deserializing.

This would be useful in some RPC servers, enabling low level software to deserialize a generic
object, which high level software might subsequently resolve to a specific object.
