-------------------------------------------------------

It works perfectly as you suggested, well, just changing name to alias:
{code:java}
@AvroAlias(alias="Type", space="com.company.avro.House$")
{code}
Is '$' in namespace allowed?

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

> 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.
