Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-3507) Proposal: separate cqlsh from CQL drivers
Date Thu, 05 Jan 2012 17:28:41 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-3507?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13180567#comment-13180567

paul cannon commented on CASSANDRA-3507:
----------------------------------------

Here is what might be a helpful thought experiment: _how would this have been solved, if cqlsh
had been written in Java, using cassandra-jdbc?_ My estimation was, based on the past, that
a cassandra-jdbc jar would probably just be bundled in with C* along with all the others.
If that's true, the arguments against bundling cassandra-dbapi2 are not very convincing.

> Whereas:
> * It has been shown to be very desirable to decouple the release cycles of Cassandra
from the various client CQL drivers, and
> * It is also desirable to include a good interactive CQL client with releases of Cassandra,
and
> * It is not desirable for Cassandra releases to depend on 3rd-party software which is
neither bundled with Cassandra nor readily available for every target platform, but
> * Any good interactive CQL client will require a CQL driver;
> Therefore, be it resolved that:
> * cqlsh will not use an official or supported CQL driver, but will include its own private
CQL driver, not intended for use by anything else, and
> * the Cassandra project will still recommend installing and using a proper CQL driver
for client software.
> To ease maintenance, the private CQL driver included with cqlsh may very well be created
by "copying the python CQL driver from one directory into another", but the user shouldn't
rely on this. Maybe we even ought to take some minor steps to discourage its use for other
purposes.
