Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-4147) cqlsh doesn't accept NULL as valid input
Date Fri, 13 Apr 2012 15:14:17 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-4147:

Explicitly inserting a null doesn't make much sense either; to Cassandra/CQL, null is the
complete absence of a value.  So we'll *return* a null if you ask for column {{foo}} and no
{{foo}} exists for a given row, but I can't think of why you'd want to explicitly insert one.
 (And a row consisting entirely of nulls wouldn't exist at all...)
