What's new?
•Chapter 1-3 have been updated and the following chapters have been added:

We have three new chapters ready for you. Chapter 4 examines the exception processing features and components of the Apache Thrift framework. It looks at predefined library exception classes used by Apache Thrift and also examines features supporting user defined exceptions in IDL and RPC. Chapter 5 takes a look at the Apache Thrift serialization protocol layer and builds some simple serialization examples with each of the three protocols: Binary, Compact, and JSON. Finally, chapter 6 explores the features of the Apache Thrift Interface Definition Language (IDL) and shows how to generate cross language type serialization and RPC support code.
