See Peter's email. But you can also use msg.getDescriptorForType().getFullName() to get a unique string for each protocol buffer message type. This is what I do for my own RPC system, which needs to be able to handle *any* message type (hence the "union" or "extension" approaches are not really correct). This needs the non-lite runtime, in order to have descriptors for messages. See:
