Doug Cutting commented on AVRO-2143:

Does it work if you specify the name and space separately in the alias?  This 
might look like:

@AvroAlias(name="Type", space="example com.company.avro.House")

> ReflectData should determine inner class names in a different way.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-2143
>             Project: Avro
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>    Affects Versions: 1.7.7
>            Reporter: Miguel
>            Priority: Major
> I used ReflectData to generate schemas containing inner classes. These 
> classes were named automatically by ReflectData with dollar ('$'), with, for 
> example com.company.avro.House$Type. Nevertheless @AvroAlias does not support 
> aliases containing '$' in names. In particulr, it fails in validateName in 
> Schema core class. The failure is correct given that AVRO name specs does 
> notinclude the '$' symbol. 
> I suppose that ReflectData should, for example, generate inner class names in 
> a different way, such as replacing '$' by dots ('.'), or it should fail.
> And a detail: Although I cannot add aliases with '$', I can still encode and 
> decode such objects and inner classes using that schema. 
> I think that it newer versions it is also happening.
