Subject Re: Recommended way to incorporate thrift to the build system.
Date Fri, 03 Jun 2011 21:11:08 GMT
More update on my side.

I was looking at a CMake module that does very similar thing - mainly, CMake
module that compiles Google Protobuf.;a=blob_plain;f=Modules/FindProtobuf.cmake;hb=HEAD

creates a new target, with its own input target (*.proto files) and output
targets (*.cc and *.h files).

I think one the major different (with respect to build system) between
protobuf and thrift is that with protobuf, you can predict what the output
files are going to be for the compiled protobuf files (x.proto generates and x.pb.h), but with thrift, you cannot know it unless you read the
actual *.thrift file, because each services generate its own file.
