Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-296) remove CQL
Date Tue, 14 Jul 2009 21:55:14 GMT


Michael Greene commented on CASSANDRA-296:

-1 for now.  HBase manages to use binary keys in their shell, I don't see how either of those
referenced issues explicitly prohibit CQL or the CLI.  HBASE-1363 and HBASE-1509 are relevant,
but even beyond the treatment of byte[] arrays, isn't it /most/ likely that the byte[]s are
UTF-8 and we can optimize for that case?

seems like the cure is worse than the disease.
