Subject Jackson version problem?
Date Thu, 17 Sep 2015 11:11:13 GMT
Dear list,

I'm trying to use the Schema parser. When I do so, I get the java error
"Cannot inherit from final class", apparently at the point where a
Jackson ObjectMapper is created.

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.VerifyError: Cannot inherit from
final class

     at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:357)
     at org.apache.avro.Schema.<clinit>(Schema.java:81)

The relevant part of the Schema code is:

79: public abstract class Schema extends JsonProperties {
80:  static final JsonFactory FACTORY = new JsonFactory();
81:  static final ObjectMapper MAPPER = new ObjectMapper(FACTORY);

I infer that the Schema class is creating an ObjectMapper in a way that
causes it to be extended, and expects it to be extendable, but it isn't.
But if I look at the source for the ObjectMapper, it would appear the
class isn't final:

57 public class  [More ...] ObjectMapper
58  extends ObjectCodec
59  implements Versioned
60  {

So perhaps my inference is wrong. Can someone help, please? I have
following in my CP:


The Getting Started page
(http://avro.apache.org/docs/1.7.7/gettingstartedjava.html) doesn't
define which version of Jackson I should have.
