Subject schema not compressed
Date Fri, 06 Mar 2015 09:51:55 GMT
Hi,

I got a question regarding the codecs supported for compressing the serialized data.
Why are only the data compressed and the schema not? Seems to me like this could further
shrink the serialized data.

See the example below:

-rw-rw-r-- 1 alex alex  806 Feb 26 10:53 odm-generated-deflate.avro
-rw-rw-r-- 1 alex alex  804 Feb 26 10:53 odm-generated-null.avro
-rw-rw-r-- 1 alex alex  529 M?r  6 10:49 odm-generated-null.avro.zip

Granted my current schema is very small. With more data the compression of deflate would
be better.

regards
alex
