Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-754) Pluggable API with a simple HTTP+JSON daemon
Date Fri, 19 Feb 2010 20:36:28 GMT


Eric Evans commented on CASSANDRA-754:

> The Thrift HTTP+JSON server is an interesting possibility here, it could coexist with
the regular Thrift service and still serve the same API. Anyone interested in producing a
patch? Or I could put one together...

So having gone through the discussion and arriving where we are now, I can 't see how exposing
multiple combinations of transports and encodings from a framework already in use is any different
than supporting similar combinations via a pluggable API, the end result is the same, no?

What problem are we trying to solve that can't be solved by a single remote API? Or is it
that Thrift and/or Avro with a binary encoding is the wrong choice for the One True API and
JSON is the right one?

If I'm being honest, I'm not at all interested in committing a change like this myself, regardless
of how it is implemented, and more and more I'm leaning toward an outright veto (not something
I would do lightly). 

I am still open to the idea that I'm wrong about this, I just haven't yet heard a compelling
