Subject Cassandra and Thrift on the Server Side
Date Mon, 28 Jun 2010 20:30:49 GMT
First let me premise, I am new to Cassandra.  I just got it installed
and was able to add data, connect to Cassandra via Thrift and retrieve
the data.  Since, Thrift uses RPC, I was wondering if Cassandra uses
Thrift on the server side to handle the requests from the clients?  I
know Thrift is used on the client side, but what about the server side?
If this is true; is there a reason for it?  Was a REST API with a JSON
payload tried?  Are there any plans to create a REST API for Cassandra?
