Subject [jira] [Commented] (CSV-164) support duplicate headers
Date Sat, 21 Nov 2015 00:41:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CSV-164?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15019194#comment-15019194

Romain Manni-Bucau commented on CSV-164:
----------------------------------------

If you see the header as a key to access the entries the key is actually the position.

I know CSVRecord.get("header") would suffer from it.

My proposal is:

- keep current logic *by default*
- keep track of duplicated records if a flag is set (supportsDuplicatedHeaders?) - note: can
log a warning
- if CSVRecord.get(aDuplicatedHeader) is called then throw an exception

Allows to use CSVRecord.get(index) without issues

wdyt?

> nothing prevents a CSV to have the same time the same header name so validation at the
end of org.apache.commons.csv.CSVFormat#validate should likely disappear or should support
a flag to disable it
