Subject [jira] [Commented] (CRUNCH-124) Javadoc the From, To, and At static methods and add convenience methods for sequenceFiles
Date Wed, 05 Dec 2012 21:14:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CRUNCH-124?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13510770#comment-13510770

Gabriel Reid commented on CRUNCH-124:
-------------------------------------

[~jwills] I think the way it is now will be fine. You're probably right that the most common
use-case is using SpecificRecord, and it's not that big of a bother to provide the PType for
the other use cases when necessary.

In my Avro experience, I've never really relied on generic records, although in the past I
did use the reflection-based Avro serialization (together with Lombok-annotated classes) quite
a bit to do quick prototyping, which basically gives you the same as working with SpecificRecords
without the hassle of creating a schema or generating classes. I think that this was mostly
motivated by laziness, and I don't think it was that common of a use case.

> Aside from org.apache.crunch.*, the o.a.c.io.(From|To|At) methods are among the most
user-facing classes we have. We should javadoc them thoroughly and add more convenience methods
that make them easier to get started with for new Crunch users.
