Java Tutorial


Introduction

All Apache Thrift tutorials require that you have:

  1. Built and installed the Apache Thrift Compiler and Libraries, see Building from source for more details.
  2. Generated the tutorial.thrift and shared.thrift files as discussed here.

    thrift -r --gen java tutorial.thrift
    
  3. Followed all prerequisites listed below.
