Miguel created AVRO-2143:

             Summary: ReflectData should determine inner class names in a 
different way.
                 Key: AVRO-2143
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-2143
             Project: Avro
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 1.7.7
            Reporter: Miguel

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.
