Subject [jira] [Created] (KAFKA-6684) Support casting values with bytes schema to string
Date Mon, 19 Mar 2018 15:55:00 GMT
Amit Sela created KAFKA-6684:
--------------------------------

             Summary: Support casting values with bytes schema to string 
                 Key: KAFKA-6684
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-6684
             Project: Kafka
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: KafkaConnect
            Reporter: Amit Sela


Casting from BYTES is not supported, which means that casting LogicalTypes is not supported.

This proposes to allow casting anything to a string, kind of like Java's {{toString()}}, such
that if the object is actually a LogicalType it can be "serialized" as string instead of
bytes+schema.

Worst case, bytes are "casted" to whatever the {{toString()}} returns - its up to the user
to know the data.

This would help when using a JSON sink, or anything that's not Avro.
