Subject [Cassandra Wiki] Update of "ClientOptions06" by JonHermes

Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Cassandra Wiki" for change notification.

The "ClientOptions06" page has been changed by JonHermes.

These are often more convenient than raw Thrift, which has a certain lowest-common-denominator
flavor to it, because that's what it does.  But, it's good to understand the Thrift [[API]]
to have an idea of what's going on under the hood.  See the individual clients for their respective
documentation. Note that by default the Thrift [[API]] is exposed on port 9160.

= Thrift =
Thrift is the Cassandra driver-level interface that the clients above build on.  You can use
raw Thrift from just about any language, but it's not particularly idiomatic in any of them.
 Some examples are given in ThriftExamples.

= Internal API =
The StorageProxy API is available to JVM-based clients, but you should use Thrift unless you
have a very good reason not to.  (The most common reason is wanting to use the BinaryMemtable
bulk-load interface.)

= Hadoop =
Running Hadoop map/reduce jobs in Cassandra is described in HadoopSupport.
