Overriding one of the two of these sounds like the right thing.
getClass() is implemented in terms of getClassName(), so if getClass()
otherwise does what you want and supplying a different class name is
sufficient then just override getClassName().  If you need to instead
override getClass() then you'll probably want to invoke super.getClass()
for non-record schemas.

I hope this helps.
