Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-9618) Consider deprecating sstable2json/json2sstable in 2.2

Sylvain Lebresne created CASSANDRA-9618:
-------------------------------------------

             Summary: Consider deprecating sstable2json/json2sstable in 2.2
                 Key: CASSANDRA-9618
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-9618
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Task
            Reporter: Sylvain Lebresne
             Fix For: 2.2.0 rc2


The rational is explained in CASSANDRA-7464 but to rephrase a bit:
* json2sstable is pretty much useless, {{CQLSSTableWriter}} is way more flexible if you need
to write sstable directly.
* sstable2json is really only potentially useful for debugging, but it's pretty bad at that
(it's output is not really all that helpul in modern Cassandra in particular).

Now, it happens that updating those tool for CASSANDRA-8099, while possible, is a bit involved.
So I don't think it make sense to invest effort in maintain these tools. So I propose to deprecate
these in 2.2 with removal in 3.0.

I'll note that having a tool to help debugging sstable can be useful, but I propose to add
a tool for that purpose with CASSANDRA-7464.
