-How to Use AvroStorage to read avro data and convert into a new (compatible) schema
I have the following problem to solve:
I have data in HDFS written out using AvroStorage with schema1.
I have schema2 which is different than schema1 but they are compatible.
Now, I want to use AvroStorage to load the data and convert to schema2.
How can I achieve that?
I tried something like:
data = load 'my_data_dir' using AvroStorage('schema', SCHEMA2_STRING);
The schema for the loaded-in data is still in schema1, not in schema2.
Any help is highly appreciated.
