Subject Re: Cassandra Java Driver and DataStax

The Apache Cassandra project has always left development of its drivers up to the community.
 The DataStax Java Driver is not part of the Apache Cassandra project, it is an open source
project created by DataStax.  You can find a large list of drivers for Cassandra here:
some of them developed by DataStax, some developed by Netflix, and many others.
