Subject Avro cycle support
Date Wed, 14 May 2014 17:38:21 GMT
My group is considering using Avro and we had some questions that I am hoping someone might
have some insight into.

  1.  Is there a plan to add cycle support to Avro? I saw this ticket: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-695.
But it hasn't been worked on since 1/2011.
  2.  Why does Avro handle cyclical schema's but not cyclical objects?
  3.  Does anyone know when non-string map keys will be available (i.e. ticket https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-680)?
  4.  How does Avro handle inheritance in lists? For example: List<BaseClass> storing
derived class objects?

Thanks for your help.
