Miguel created AVRO-2143:
Summary: ReflectData should determine inner class names in a
Issue Type: Improvement
Affects Versions: 1.7.7
I used ReflectData to generate schemas containing inner classes. These classes
were named automatically by ReflectData with dollar ('$'). Nevertheless
@AvroAlias does not support aliases containing '$' in names. It fails in
validateName in Schema core class. The failure is correct given that AVRO name
specs state that the names cannot contain '$'.
Therefore, ReflectData should, for example, generate inner class names in a
different way, such as replacing '$' by dots ('.'), or should fail.
Although I cannot add aliases, I can still encode and decode such objects and
inner classes using that schema.
I think that newer versions are also affected.
