Subject [jira] Commented: (MAPREDUCE-980) Modify JobHistory to use Avro for serialization instead of raw JSON
Date Thu, 17 Sep 2009 06:33:57 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-980?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12756382#action_12756382

Sharad Agarwal commented on MAPREDUCE-980:

It would have been ideal if we could directly use Avro generated classes without wrapping
them. Wrapper classes are not very maintainable because we need to modify at two places- schema
definition and wrapper class. Any reason why we can't directly use generated classes ? From
what I can think of  - this is done because we want all event classes to have a base interface,
constructor and field getters. Having constructor and getters should be straight forward in
code generator. For base class/interface, I think Avro can generate code from a template.
SpecificRecordBase methods can directly go into the generated class (to work around multiple
inheritance in java). Users can define the base class, interfaces or additional methods in
the template which can be used to generate Avro specific class. I understand that this may
not be doable at this point but something worth considering at some point to make Avro code
generation feature more compelling.
