Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-9232) "timestamp" is considered as a reserved keyword in cqlsh completion
Date Mon, 29 Jun 2015 02:46:04 GMT


Stefania commented on CASSANDRA-9232:

Unfortunately the cql keywords exported by the new version of the driver are too many. We
now have 123 keywords but python regular expressions only support 100 named groups maximum:

Traceback (most recent call last):

AssertionError: sorry, but this version only supports 100 named groups

There is a third party module that might do the job, [regex|],
but it would require changing and adding one more dependency.

Can we do without named groups and add separate map alternatively?

>            Reporter: Michaël Figuière
>            Assignee: Stefania
>            Priority: Trivial
>              Labels: cqlsh
>             Fix For: 3.x, 2.1.x
> cqlsh seems to treat "timestamp" as a reserved keyword when used as an identifier:
> {code}
> cqlsh:ks1> create table t1 (int int primary key, ascii ascii, bigint bigint, blob
blob, boolean boolean, date date, decimal decimal, double double, float float, inet inet,
text text, time time, timestamp timestamp, timeuuid timeuuid, uuid uuid, varchar varchar,
varint varint);
> {code}
> Leads to the following completion when building an {{INSERT}} statement:
> {code}
> cqlsh:ks1> insert into t1 (int, 
> "timestamp" ascii       bigint      blob        boolean     date        decimal     double
     float       inet        text        time        timeuuid    uuid        varchar     varint
> {code}
> "timestamp" is a keyword but not a reserved one and should therefore not be proposed
as a quoted string. It looks like this error happens only for timestamp. Not a big deal of
course, but it might be worth reviewing the keywords treated as reserved in cqlsh, especially
with the many changes introduced in 3.0.
