Subject Avro Client-Server - generic vs specific
Date Mon, 30 Sep 2013 10:32:17 GMT
Hello,

We have got two ways of creating an RPC communication protocol from AVDL.

Generic: 
https://github.com/matteobertozzi/Hadoop/blob/master/avro-examples/java/ipc/HTServer.java
Specific:https://github.com/phunt/avro-rpc-quickstart/blob/master/src/main/java/example/Main.java

Specific provide a custom implementation (it require code generation 
based on avdl) while generic provide 'generic' implementation. What this 
*generic* actually means in terms of a protocol specification and code use?

1. What is the difference between the two apart from code look?
2. I can not understand what would be a good example code showing the 
advantages of Specific vs Generic responder?
3. When would be the good choice to use *generic* and when *specific 
(code generation?)* responder?

thank you in advance for your time replying.

Mick
