Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-6237) Allow range deletions in CQL
Date Mon, 12 Jan 2015 14:35:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-6237?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14273645#comment-14273645
] 

Sylvain Lebresne commented on CASSANDRA-6237:
---------------------------------------------

How would {{x BETWEEN y AND z}} differs from {{x >= y AND x <= z}} (not necessarily
vetoing it as syntaxic sugar but that's not really linked to that issue (it's not limited
to deletes))?

> We uses RangeTombstones internally in a number of places, but we could expose more directly
too. Typically, given a table like:
> {noformat}
> CREATE TABLE events (
>     id text,
>     created_at timestamp,
>     content text,
>     PRIMARY KEY (id, created_at)
> )
> {noformat}
> we could allow queries like:
> {noformat}
> DELETE FROM events WHERE id='someEvent' AND created_at < 'Jan 3, 2013';
> {noformat}
