Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-2478) Custom CQL protocol/transport
Date Tue, 08 Nov 2011 18:23:53 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-2478?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13146454#comment-13146454
] 

Rick Branson commented on CASSANDRA-2478:
-----------------------------------------

I believe the focus is on getting CQL up to 100% parity functionality-wise with Thrift, and
then there will be time to work on this. Once CQL becomes the default, it'll be transparent
to switch out the 'innards' with a custom protocol. An extremely optimistic figure puts this
6 months out.

> 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.
