I'm using Avro's reflection api to publish out domain objects from Hadoop through messaging middleware. The subscribers of my data are interested in different subsets of the objects. Instead of them having to use a version of my original object, is it possible for them to define a totally different object (different namespace/name) that has a small subset of the original objects properties (matching names/primitive types) and then deserialize to that object?
So far I've been running into AvroTypeException's when I use a different reader object.
Thanks for your help!
