Subject Re: How to add custom code to avro generated Java objects?
Date Mon, 14 Mar 2011 18:45:24 GMT
The best practice is not to modify the generated classes directly, but
rather to author classes that wrap instances of generated classes,
adding methods that enforce such constraints to those.  The wrapper
classes can then also maintain back-compatible APIs.  Does that make sense?
