Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-7248) Tuple type
Date Wed, 28 May 2014 14:05:02 GMT


Sylvain Lebresne commented on CASSANDRA-7248:

Ok, I've now pushed some tests on the same branch than above. But since we decided to use
the unit tests suite for CQL tests, I've created a CQLTester class that is meant to be extended
by CQL tests and that provide convenience methods for execute and asserts. One of the nice
property of it being that all tests can be executed using either the prepared path or the
normal, query string, path (without writing every test twice that is).

I've added a bunch of tuple tests using that. I've also migrated MultiColumnRelationTest (the
only CQL test we have in the unit tests so far) to use that new CQLTester class.

> For CASSANDRA-6875 we need to be able to talk about tuples values and types (for prepared
variables). Since we need it there, clients will need to support them anyway and so I think
it would be a lot cleaner to start supporting those more generally. Besides, having tuples
is a relatively simple and natural extension to what we have. I'll note in particular that
tuple have a close relationship to user type in the sense that a tuple will be really just
like an anonymous with no name for the fields and in particular a tuple value will be the
same than a user type value.
> The syntax would simply look like that:
> {noformat}
>     k int PRIMARY KEY,
>     v tuple<int, text, float>
> )
> INSERT INTO foo(k, v) VALUES(0, (3, 'bar', 2.1));
> {noformat}
> We can also add projections in selects if we want:
> {noformat}
> SELECT v[0], v[2] FROM foo WHERE k = 0;
> {noformat}
> but that can come later (after all, we still don't have projections for collections and
it's not a big deal).
