Comment #3 on issue 493 by owen.oma...@gmail.com: protobuf-java (2.5.0)
GeneratedMessage#getUnknownFields() not implemented
This is *really* unfortunate, given that 2.5 generated code won't compile
against 2.4 libraries. It means that the entire Hadoop ecosystem needs to
move protobuf versions synchronized with each other. Can I suggest that if
you are going to break compatibility, that you make it fail at compile time
rather than run time so that the error will be caught during compilation?
Much much better of course is to not break compatibility. Using reflection
to determine the version of the protobuf library and use new features if
they are available would be the preferred solution.
