Hello Protobuf team,
first of all thank you for your great Job. We have been internally using
protobuf in a big financial software company for a while and is has proven
to be the best choice so far.
As our need for multiplatform is growing, we have modified Protobuf and
added some features.
We reached a point where we though about sharing our need features and see
if they can be integrated into the Protobuf mainline.
Here are the features :
- Generate a new interface for mutable proto objects:
- Write interfaces (*OrBuilder and *.IBuilder) into separate files. This
allows us to package interfaces into a standalone jar that can be
referenced from modules that don't need to depend on the implementation.
- Generate services for protobuf nano: we have an Android client using
our internal RPC system built around protobuf services.
- Be able to serialize and parse Proto objects to and from JSON strings.
It seems this feature is partially implemented in proto3.
- Generate GWT overlays and create a gwt-compatible protobuf jar (like
the guava-gwt jar). The gwt-compatible protobuf only has the protobuf nano
We have been exchanging with Ray Cromwell at the GWT.create conference this
year and it seems that some teams at Google have developed there own JSON
parser and overlay generator.
Are those features relevant for integration into the protobuf mainline ?
