Subject CQL, 0.8, and need for language drivers
Date Wed, 13 Apr 2011 02:16:28 GMT
As some may have heard, CQL is going to be in 0.8.  It's a level of abstraction that will hopefully
make the lives of client developers substantially easier.  The ideal is to make it so client
devs only need to do work to make a client idiomatic to a language or even a framework within
a language.  Work has already been done to add a Java driver (even a JDBC driver), a Python
driver (even a dbapi driver and Python Twisted driver), and work is under way to add a PHP
driver and a node.js driver

Cassandra 0.8 is part of a shorter release cycle and will include CQL.  It will be going to
its first beta shortly.

If you would like to help get support into 0.8 with a driver for your favorite language, take
a look at the examples already in the source tree and dig in.  Use the
mailing list (see the bottom of for mailing list details) and
Jira for any communication.  Each driver needs its own Jira ticket.

See: - CQL umbrella ticket - python dbapi ticket - node.js
The rest of the drivers are either in the source tree under:
or are still being talked about on the mailing list.

Thanks to Eric Evans and Gary Dusbabek and others for all their hard work!
