Subject Re: Error in TBaseHelper compareTo(byte [] a , byte [] b)
Date Mon, 03 May 2010 22:46:51 GMT
You'd need to check out thrift r820831, fix the compareTo code, then
build a new jar.

You can't just use the jar from 0.6 or from current thrift trunk
because Thrift breaks backwards compatibility frequently, and there
were such changes between our 0.5 and 0.6.

So, yes, you could do it, but it's probably easier to upgrade to 0.6.
And a good idea anyway because of the other fixes that went in.
