Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-6021) Creating keyspace fails with cryptic error.
Date Sat, 14 Sep 2013 05:20:52 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-6021?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13767373#comment-13767373
] 

Aleksey Yeschenko commented on CASSANDRA-6021:
----------------------------------------------

Your main issue here is that you haven't quoted 'replication_factor' in you original request
- and it's been invalid syntax since the very beginning. The statement you tried to run is
also for CLI, not for cqlsh.

Had you quoted it properly, you'd get a non-cryptic error:
{noformat}
create keyspace base_test with strategy_options = {'replication_factor':1}  and placement_strategy='org.apache.cassandra.locator.SimpleStrategy';
Bad Request: Unknown property 'placement_strategy'
{noformat}

>             Project: Cassandra
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: API

>            Reporter: Jacob Rhoden

> Creating a keyspace returns a strange and cryptic error. (Java exception falling through
to cqlsh)
>     cqlsh> create keyspace base_test with strategy_options = {replication_factor:1}
and placement_strategy='org.apache.cassandra.locator.SimpleStrategy';
>     Bad Request: Failed parsing statement: [create keyspace base_test with strategy_options
= {replication_factor:1} and placement_strategy='org.apache.cassandra.locator.SimpleStrategy';]
reason: NullPointerException null
> I've tried increasing the logging level but I cant seem to get any more info about it.
If there is other information I can provide that might be useful please let me know.
> Im still learning cassandra so its possible im doing something stupid, but either way,
a null pointer exception is not an ideal error message.
