Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6120) Add support for Avro types in hadoop
Date Tue, 30 Jun 2009 06:31:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6120?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12725490#action_12725490
] 

Sharad Agarwal commented on HADOOP-6120:
----------------------------------------

The Serialization interface can be implemented for Avro types. Currently Avro has 3 types
in java: specific, reflect and generic. I think the current Serialization interface is fine
to implement 'specific' type as the schema information can be inferred from the class. The
schema can't be inferred from the 'reflect' and 'generic' type classes. So the current Serialization
interface doesn't seem to be sufficient to implement these. I think the Serialization interface
need to be extended to pass on additional info to have implementation for 'generic' and 'reflect'.
