Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-5452) Allow empty blob literals in CQL3
Date Wed, 10 Apr 2013 18:08:16 GMT
Sylvain Lebresne created CASSANDRA-5452:

             Summary: Allow empty blob literals in CQL3
                 Key: CASSANDRA-5452
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.2.1
            Reporter: Sylvain Lebresne
            Assignee: Sylvain Lebresne
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 1.2.5
         Attachments: 5452.txt

The current grammar don't allow empty blob literals (so '0x'). The goal here is to allow the
following syntax for that:
INSERT INTO test(k, b) VALUES (0, 0x)
I'll admit that '0x' is not the most beautiful syntax ever, but I think that's the only thing
that make sense.

I'll note that currently there is 2 workaround to insert empty blobs: you can either use prepared
statement (not a bad idea when using blobs anyway) or, because we've deprecated but still
support until 2.0 using strings as blob (to allow upgrade from 1.2.0 to 1.2.1), you can use
an empty string. I'll note that this latter workaround will trigger a deprecation warning
in the log however and will stop working in 2.0.
