-------------------------------------

             Summary: getDetachedValue calls to AvroReflectDeepCopier throw InstantiationException
on non-concrete types
                 Key: CRUNCH-548
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CRUNCH-548
             Project: Crunch
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Adric Eckstein


A common use case with avro reflection is to operate on an abstract class or interface which
is serialized using a schema based on a concrete subclass (or union of subclasses).

@org.apache.avro.reflect.Union({ Foo1.class })
public interface Foo {
	public String getFoo();
}
public class Foo1 implements Foo {
	private final Double value = 1.0;
	@Override
	public String getFoo() {
		return value.toString();
	}
}

When trying to operate on this type within crunch, calls to getDetachedValue() will throw
an InstantiationException:

AvroType<Foo> ptype = Avros.reflects(Foo.class, ReflectData.get().getSchema(Foo.class));
ptype.initialize(new Configuration());
Foo copy1 = ptype.getDetachedValue(new Foo1());

Exception in thread "main" org.apache.crunch.CrunchRuntimeException: java.lang.InstantiationException:
org.mitre.caasd.tt.DeepCopyTest$Foo
	at org.apache.crunch.types.avro.AvroDeepCopier$AvroReflectDeepCopier.createNewInstance(AvroDeepCopier.java:158)

One solution would be to augment the createNewInstance() method in AvroReflectDeepCopier to
create a new instance based on the source object class, rather than the type class.  This
would generally be desirable for any union cases where the source is a subclass of the type
class.
