Subject Dependencies
Date Wed, 27 May 2009 02:59:19 GMT
Hi all.
I'm having a little trouble with dependencies in Thrift. See this for an
example:

struct TAccount {
1: i32 id,
2: string email,
3: string name,
4: string password,
5: list<TPhone> phones,
6: string address,
7: string postalCode,
8: string city,
9: string country,
10: list<TCritic> critics
}

struct TCritic {
1: i32 id,
2: TAccount author,
3: i32 rating,
4: string text
}

struct TCompany {
1: i32 id,
2: string name,
3: string email,
4: string phone,
5: string address,
6: string postalCode,
7: string city,
8: string country,
9: list<TAccount> employees,
10: list<TCritic> critics
}

This is just a partial copy/paste. Some structs aren't shown here.

This doesn't compile into Thrift files. The problem here is that TAccount
depends on TCritic and TCritic depends on TAccount. The thing is that
structs can't see other structs that are defined after (below) them. Is
there a workaround for this?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Kristinn.
