Subject [jira] [Commented] (GORA-174) GORA compiler does not handle ["string", "null"] unions in the AVRO schema
Date Fri, 03 May 2013 22:10:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GORA-174?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13648836#comment-13648836

Lewis John McGibbney commented on GORA-174:
-------------------------------------------

Hi Alfonso, I think we've all bee lost in thought. From something seemingly trivial (nutch
avsc) it has snowballed into a rather interesting and technically challenging (for me anyway)
issue.
I would like to propose that we  implement ONLY what is necessary to satisfy support for 
["string", "null"] unions. Of course Accumulo, HBase, Cassandra should also support this.
Hence the child issues assigned to this issue.
Everything else over and above the ["string", "null"] unions should be addressed in subsequent
issues. 
We need to watch that our eyes are not bigger than our stomachs here. I've already made this
problem for lunch today (I got a big pizza... way too much).
Thanks for the dialogue.

> We are getting NPE when using the DataFileAvroStore, in order to avoid that I modified
the schema to allow for null values on some fields e.g.    {"name": "baseUrl", "type": ["string",
"null"] }
> however when generating the code for the schema the accessors are not generated by GORA
which prevents Nutch from compiling
