Subject Re: Hadoop's Avro dependencies.
Date Wed, 22 Aug 2012 05:52:44 GMT

Hadoop doesn't use Avro serialization on its own. However, Hadoop 2.x
does provide an AvroSerialization class you can use optionally to
serialize using Avro libraries, and the 2.x distribution does ship an
Avro jar along with it.
