Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-2474) CQL support for compound columns
Date Thu, 05 Jan 2012 16:57:39 GMT

Eric Evans commented on CASSANDRA-2474:
---------------------------------------

bq. But at the risk of sounding like a buzzkill, I'd mention that this will be tight and I
don't think we should rush this (both code and review). That being said, if there is no hiccup
with the implementation we may be good.

I also think this is tight, particularly since it's introducing new syntax, and a syntax that
required one of the most (if not _the_ most) epic discussions.  Ever.

I've been thinking about this for a while, but what do people think about implementing an
experimental mode?  Something that involves setting a boolean in {{cassandra.conf}}, or passing
a {{-Dcassandra.experimental=true}} property.

Code like this (or prepared statements for that matter) could test that experimental mode
is enabled, or raise a new Thrift exception if it isn't.

Granted that means we'll see less testing than we would otherwise, but I think we stand to
see more/better testing than we would from a beta or RC.  More importantly, it sets an expectation
that it's new, less tested, and that breaking changes might be coming (all of which are true
IMO).

> For the most part, this boils down to supporting the specification of compound column
names (the CQL syntax is colon-delimted terms), and then teaching the decoders (drivers) to
create structures from the results.
