Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-7622) Implement virtual tables
Date Tue, 12 May 2015 15:59:02 GMT


Benjamin Lerer commented on CASSANDRA-7622:

As discussed with [~iamaleksey] off line, what we want to allow for virtual table is the following:
* limited {{SELECT}}: select all or select where with complete primary key
* limited {{UPDATE}}: no {{DELETE}}, no {{INSERT}} only {{UPDATE SET}} (It is required for
some setter that are exposed via JMX)
* the data returned or updated will only be the data of the host
* virtual tables will not be accessible via Thrift

The plan is to reuse the parsing logic and a bit of {{SelectStatement}} and {{UpdateStatement}}.

> There are a variety of reasons to want virtual tables, which would be any table that
would be backed by an API, rather than data explicitly managed and stored as sstables.
> One possible use case would be to expose JMX data through CQL as a resurrection of CASSANDRA-3527.
> Another is a more general framework to implement the ability to expose yaml configuration
information. So it would be an alternate approach to CASSANDRA-7370.
> A possible implementation would be in terms of CASSANDRA-7443, but I am not presupposing.
