Subject Re: CqlPreparedResult enhancements ?
Date Sat, 12 May 2012 15:30:11 GMT
Hi Eric,

I'm not sad anyway :)

Having only types is not enough for the framework I'd like to implement client side. Prepare
server side knows for sure what are the names of the parameters. Adding that to the parameters
types will be perfect so.

And I'm not asking for backport on v2. I do not mind targeting v3 and Cassandra 1.1+ only.

I will open an improvement ticket to add parameters names to CqlPreparedResult then.

Thanks !

- Pierre

There, there, don't be sad.  Keep your chin up, it'll be OK.

For what it's worth, CQL3 (use set_cql_version("3")) does return
variable types.  I haven't looked, so I'm not sure how difficult it
would be to backport this to CQL2, but why not open a ticket and see?
