Subject [jira] [Commented] (KAFKA-316) disallow recursively compressed message
Date Thu, 04 Jul 2013 03:12:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-316?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13699732#comment-13699732

David Arthur commented on KAFKA-316:

In addition to the reasons citing in the description, it makes client message decoding more
complex. I'm not sure what reason there would be to keep it.

> Currently, it is possible to create a compressed Message that contains a set of Messages,
each of which is further compressed. Support recursively compressed messages has little benefit
and can complicates the on disk storage format. We should probably disallow this.
