Subject RE: Question regarding java being the choice for accumulo
Date Wed, 29 Jul 2015 19:02:27 GMT
I’m not sure what the motivation behind the question is, but one other thing to keep in mind
is that you can write you own program in whatever language you want and still use Accumulo.
Accumulo uses Apache Thrift, so you can use whatever language you want with Accumulo. You
just need to compile the thrift code to your language of choice. Thrift  will give you an
Accumulo API in that language.

So if you really want to write you code in C++, you can do that and still use Accumulo. You
will need a JVM to run Accumulo itself, but your code won’t need to be java based.

Thank you Josh and Keith.

We have a small amount of C++ code used to manage all data written to Accumulo.  Using C++
for this very small amount of high performance, memory intensive code has worked out well.
  Coding task that do not need to be high performance in Java, like tablet assignment and
management of cluster state is nice.

Hello everyone,

I was wondering why did the developers chose java for writing accumulo. What advantage it
has over using any other language say C++(in which another popular nosql database MongoDB
is written) in context of accumulo?
