Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-3380) REST Layer
Date Thu, 20 Oct 2011 01:18:10 GMT


Brian ONeill commented on CASSANDRA-3380:

I can appreciate that perspective.  When I first posted the thought of a REST layer to the
dev list, Gary immediately responded with his thoughts and Jeremy asked I respond to the list
when I had something.  Based on their responses and Matt's link to his Helena project,  I
may have overestimated the demand/need.  I'll reach out to Gary to get his input, but I don't
mind letting this JIRA issue brew for a while to see if there is interest.

Acceptance is certainly not a deal breaker.  Like you said, this code solves our needs and
we'll continue to extend it.  I can throw it out into an open source project to see if it
sticks.  Any preferred forum for that project?

(One final note that I posted today to the user list; we could potentially use this REST layer
as an integration point for Elastic Search, much the way CouchDB integrated as a river,
 We may try to head that way depending on what is available in DataStax Enterprise. I'll let
you guys know if that manifests itself.)

> This is a native rest layer for Cassandra implementing AbstractCassandraDaemon.
> It uses JAX-RS fueled by Apache CXF.
> Presently it supports the following operations JSON over HTTP:
>  - Create keyspace
>  - Drop keyspace
>  - Create column family
>  - Drop column family
>  - Insert row
>  - Fetch row
>  - Delete row
>  - Insert column
>  - Delete column 
>  - Fetch column
> The patch creates a new project in contrib/rest.  You can compile the project using "ant",
which uses ivy to pull in dependencies.  To get setup, you can also use the pom.xml file and
m2eclipse to get it into Eclipse.
> Once compiled, simpy run "bin/rest_cassandra" and follow along in the README.txt
