Subject Re: Avro RPC?
Date Wed, 22 Dec 2010 17:52:53 GMT
As a C# client maintainer, I have based Aquiles to work with Thrift than
AVRO, since there is no support for AVRO on C# yet.
Check: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-533

<https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-533>Another thing you may check,
if you are thinking on a new protocol for comunication is Hessian (
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hessian_(web_service_protocol))

In my opinion, I would mantain Thrift, since it's fair enough for what we
need right now and probably most of the actual developed clients are based
on it.
