Subject [jira] [Commented] (DRILL-621) Timezone map should be exposed as a protobuf enum
Date Sat, 03 May 2014 06:45:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DRILL-621?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13988600#comment-13988600

Julian Hyde commented on DRILL-621:
-----------------------------------

I disagree with that approach. I think timezones should be represented as strings. The interpretation
of the strings is left to a timezone library.

The strings can probably be dictionary encoded, so won't take more than a few bits in practice.

> The Timezone map in DateUtility should be exposed as a protobuf enum so that the TimeStampTZ
type can be decoded by an RPC client (e.g. the C++ client). This is also useful if newer timezones
are created: older timezone values will not be lost and newer values will be automatically
available to newer builds.
