Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-2478) Custom CQL protocol/transport
Date Thu, 05 Jul 2012 20:21:36 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-2478?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13407449#comment-13407449
] 

Rick Shaw commented on CASSANDRA-2478:
--------------------------------------

The client community typically only uses cassandra-thrift and cassandra-clientutil.jar as
well as some required dependencies like guava.jar. It appears as though there is no addition
to the cassandra-clientutils jar (yet) to allow for client only access to the new transport
libraries. It also appears that there are some thrift exceptions in the new code methods.
Is there a plan to run the new native CQL protocol without the thrift libraries?

> 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.
