Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-4866) Protocol buffer support cannot compile under C
Date Thu, 13 Jun 2013 17:31:22 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4866?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13682452#comment-13682452

Arpit Agarwal commented on HDFS-4866:

Hi Chris,

Thanks for taking a look.

I don't know of a way to avoid the backward incompatibility either. 

Note that this is the inter-namenode protocol so it should not affect older clients.

> When compiling Hadoop's .proto descriptions for use in C, an error occurs because one
of the RPC's in NamenodeProtocol.proto is named "register". This name is a reserved word in
languages such as C. When using the Java and C++ languages, the name is hidden inside a class
and therefore doesn't cause an error. Unfortunately, that is not the case in non-class languages
such as C.
> Note: generating the C translation of the .proto files requires installation of the protobuf-c
package from google:
