RecordEditor Family

The Avro-Editor is part of a family of editors all based on the RecordEditor. Building the Avro-Editor on top of the RecordEditor has both advantages and disadvantages:


  • Once you learn to use one of the Editors you will be able to use any of the other Editor's.
  • Saved a huge amount of development time.
  • Greater functionality is available in the Editor


  • The Avro-Editor is not as well adapted to Avro files as a specially written editor would be
