Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-10411) Add/drop multiple columns in one ALTER TABLE statement
Date Thu, 31 Dec 2015 08:58:49 GMT


Amit Singh Chowdhery commented on CASSANDRA-10411:

Robert Stupp, I have taken Cassansdra formatter from
I think the existing code file is not as per the recommended formatter. So once I applied
the formatting, formatting changes popped up. Please verify it at your end too. Do you want
me disable formatter and checkin file ?
 "it would also be ok to go one step further and to allow drops, alters and adds of columns
in the same statement"
 I think we can have separate JIRA ticket for that. I would like to stick to current scope
of JIRA which is about supporting multiple add/drops
 I will provide patch over trunk and will also check formatting in trunk.

> Currently it is only possible to add one column at a time in an alter table statement.
It would be great if we could add multiple columns at a time.
> The primary reason for this is that adding each column individually seems to take a significant
amount of time (at least on my development machine), I know all the columns I want to add,
but don't know them until after the initial table is created.
> As a secondary consideration it brings CQL slightly closer to SQL where most databases
can handle adding multiple columns in one statement.
