Subject Re: C++ Interface Issues
Date Tue, 19 Jan 2010 02:01:09 GMT
I think you are seeing the behavior described at in
http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/THRIFT-455, where "In C++,
optional fields require applications to manually set __isset fields,
otherwise they are not serialized on writing."  Apparently this is
considered a "feature."
