Subject When will TProtocolUtil.skip() be called
Date Mon, 12 Jan 2015 08:55:22 GMT
I am using thrift 0.7.0 on my server, and recently find sometimes my server
busy calling TProtocolUtil.skip().

stack trace:

"New I/O  worker #75" daemon prio=10 tid=0x00007f7804892000
nid=0x51601 runnable [0x00007f76129e7000]
   java.lang.Thread.State: RUNNABLE
    at org.apache.thrift.protocol.TProtocolUtil.skip(
    at org.apache.thrift.protocol.TProtocolUtil.skip(
    at org.apache.thrift.TDeserializer.deserialize(

this happens when I try to deserialize the binary content from client.

Is it true that TProtocolUtil .skip() will be called only  when
My_Thrift_Object see some field that it doesn't know ?

if yes, when will this happen?

I can come up with 2 conditions:

1. old server see data from new client and the new client has defined some
new field in thrift.
2. the binary content is corrupted or someone maliciously build up it.

is my understanding right?
