Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-6833) Add json data type
Date Tue, 11 Mar 2014 20:40:45 GMT


Sergio Bossa commented on CASSANDRA-6833:

I agree with [~iamaleksey]: that would definitely give users the wrong message, and encourage
what in the end is a bad practice.
I've personally done that in the past (stuffing JSON blobs inside columns), and that's a pretty
opaque and inefficient way of modelling your data, as opposed to CQL3.

> While recognizing that UDT (CASSANDRA-5590) is the Right Way to store hierarchical data
in C*, it can still be useful to store json blobs as text.  Adding a json type would allow
validating that data.  (And adding formatting support in cqlsh?)
