Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-8785) Check for alternative of json-simple library
Date Wed, 11 Feb 2015 15:02:11 GMT


Aleksey Yeschenko commented on CASSANDRA-8785:

sstable2json/sstable2json are going to be removed/replaced soon. The replacements may or may
not use JSON output/input at all, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Otherwise we don't use JSON much (pre-7970).

I suggest you raise this issue in CASSANDRA-7970 with Tyler, since that is the only place
where it matters, and maybe switch libraries as part of that ticket.

>            Reporter: Robert Stupp
>             Fix For: 3.0
> The JSON library used in C* (json-simple 1.1) is quite aged: 1.1 is dated 08/2009 and
the newest version 1.1.1 is dated 03/2012.
> That library uses very old Java APIs (e.g. StringBuffer) and has no streaming API. Especially
the streaming API should improve json2sstable and sstable2json tools.
> On [this page|]
is some JSON parser performance comparison.
> IMO Jackson feels like a nice alternative.
> /cc [~iamaleksey] v3.0 ok?
