> Support pre-defining types within GoraCompiler
> ----------------------------------------------
>                 Key: GORA-397
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GORA-397
>             Project: Apache Gora
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: avro, gora-compiler
>    Affects Versions: 0.5
>            Reporter: Lewis John McGibbney
>             Fix For: 0.6
> Right now in the GoraCompiler we do not support predefining field types based on ordering
of .avsc as it is passed into the GoraCompiler.
> This is supported in the Avro SpecificCompiler meaning that you can write schemas which
inherit fields of custom type based on the compiler reading the custom type before it is used
within the compilation and use of this type in another schema.
> This feature is VERY useful when working with scomplex schema models and where you wish
to separate out and maintain individual objects rather than explicitly nest them in large,
difficult to maintain schema objects!
