Subject Re: Direct conversion from Generic Record to Specific Record
Date Wed, 05 Feb 2014 22:59:50 GMT
Hi Christophe,

Thanks for your reply.  When you say that we could write a generic
conversion function, do you mean we can write one that works for all
schemas?  That would be great!

I'd like an API something like this:

MyCustomRecord record = MyCustomRecord.newBuilder(GenericRecord
record).build()

Thanks,

Roger
