Subject [jira] [Updated] (CASSANDRA-2478) Custom protocol/transport
Date Thu, 14 Apr 2011 17:09:05 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-2478?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Eric Evans updated CASSANDRA-2478:
----------------------------------

    Description: 
A custom wire protocol would give us the flexibility to optimize for our specific use-cases,
and eliminate a troublesome dependency (I'm referring to Thrift, but none of the others would
be significantly better).  Additionally, RPC is bad fit here, and we'd do better to move in
the direction of something that natively supports streaming.

I don't think this is as daunting as it might seem initially.  Utilizing an existing server
framework like Netty, combined with some copy-and-paste of bits from other FLOSS projects
would probably get us 80% of the way there.
