Marius Soutier commented on AVRO-1582:
--------------------------------------

Can we increase priority on this? It'd make Avro adoption in existing JSON 
environments much easier.


> Json serialization of nullable fileds and fields with default values 
> improvement.

> Currently serializing a nullable field of type union like:
> "type" : ["null","some type"]
> when serialized as JSON results in:  
> "field":{"some type":"value"}
> when it could be:
> "field":"value"
> Also fields that equal the the default value can be omitted from the 
> serialized data. This is possible because the reader will have the writer's 
> schema and can infer the field values. This reduces the size of the json 
> messages.
