Subject Re: Trouble with consuming Avro messages
Date Mon, 24 Sep 2012 19:44:36 GMT
Hi Murtaza,

I don't think it's the same issue.
I'm using the exact same schema on both ends. 
I generated an IndexedRecord from an avsc file and both the encoder and decoder reference
the same data type (and therefore the same IndexedRecord.$SCHEMA).

Also, the payload size mismatch is on the raw ByteBuffer before decoding occurs, is it not?
(No Avro/schema involved on the decoding side yet)
