Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-2409) Add INSERT support to CQL
Date Thu, 31 Mar 2011 18:14:05 GMT
Add INSERT support to CQL

                 Key: CASSANDRA-2409
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: API
            Reporter: Jonathan Ellis
             Fix For: 0.8

There are two reasons to support INSERT:

- It helps new users feel comfortable (everyone's first statement will be to try to INSERT
something, we should make that a positive experience instead of slapping them)
- Even though it is synonymous with update it is still useful in your code to have both to
help communicate intent, similar to choosing good variable names

The only downside is explaining how INSERT isn't a "true" insert because it doesn't error
out if the row already exists -- but we already have to explain that same concept for UPDATE;
the cognitive load is extremely minor.
