Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-9198) Deleting from an empty list produces an error
Date Thu, 16 Apr 2015 08:33:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-9198?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14497728#comment-14497728

Benjamin Lerer commented on CASSANDRA-9198:
-------------------------------------------

Cassandra does not differentiate between an empty list and a list which is null. In Java deleting
from an empty list is fine not from a list which is null.

Making the delete operation a noop operation can be done but from my opinion it is a breaking
change so if we do it we should do it in 3.0.

> While deleting an element from a list that does not contain it is a no-op, deleting it
from an empty list causes an error.
> This edge case is a bit inconsistent, because it makes list deletion non idempotent:
> {code}
> cqlsh:test> create table foo (k int primary key, v list<int>);
> cqlsh:test> insert into foo(k,v) values (1, [1,2]);
> cqlsh:test> update foo set v = v - [1] where k = 1;
> cqlsh:test> update foo set v = v - [1] where k = 1;
> cqlsh:test> update foo set v = v - [2] where k = 1;
> cqlsh:test> update foo set v = v - [2] where k = 1;
> InvalidRequest: code=2200 [Invalid query] message="Attempted to delete an element from
a list which is null"
> {code}
> With speculative retries coming to the drivers, idempotency becomes more important because
it determines which query we might retry or not. So it would be better if deleting from an
empty list succeeded.
