> In support of DRILL-5323, we wish to provide a very easy way to work with row sets. See
the comment section for examples of the target API.
> Drill provides over 100 different value vectors, any of which may be required to perform
a specific unit test. Creating these vectors, populating them, and retrieving values, is very
tedious. The work is so complex that it acts to discourage developers from writing such tests.
> To simplify the task, we wish to provide a simplified row set reader and writer. To do
that, we need to generate the corresponding column reader and writer for each value vector.
This ticket focuses on the column-level readers and writers, and the required code generation.
> Drill already provides vector readers and writers derived from {{FieldReader}}. However,
these readers do not provide a uniform get/set interface that is type independent on the application
side. Instead, application code must be aware of the type of the vector, something we seek
to avoid for test code.
> The reader and writer classes are designed to be used in many contexts, not just for
testing. As a result, their implementation makes no assumptions about the broader row reader
and writer, other than that a row index and the required value vector are both available.
