Thomas Koch commented on ZOOKEEPER-102:

Another option would be avro. Does anybody know, whether avro is wire 
compatible with jute? We would need to support communication between older 
jute-only Clients/Servers and newer avro(+jute?) Clients/Servers.

Would this be a good Google Summer of Code task?

>            Reporter: Benjamin Reed
> ZooKeeper currently uses Jute to serialize objects to put on the wire and on 
> disk. We pulled Jute out of Hadoop and added a C binding. Both versions of 
> Jute have evolved (although Hadoop still doesn't have a C binding). It would 
> be nice to use a more standard serialization library. Some options include 
> Thrift or Google's protocol buffers.
> Our main requirements would be Java and C bindings and good performance. (For 
> example, serializing to XML would give us incredibly bad performance and 
> would not be acceptible!)
