Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-2478) Custom CQL protocol/transport
Date Tue, 22 May 2012 14:33:41 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-2478?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13280997#comment-13280997
] 

Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-2478:
-------------------------------------------

How does this matter?  As far as JDBC is concerned, a resultset can be from many tables or
even none.  ISTM if we report what the column names and types are, that should be all the
driver needs to care about.

> 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.
