Subject RE: CRUD test
Date Mon, 26 Jul 2010 15:17:45 GMT
One last question for me:

If I wanted to find all the "Keys" within a SuperColumn Family would I do something like:


client.get_slice(KEYSPACE, null, new ColumnParent("Super2"), slicePredicate,  ConsistencyLevel.ALL);

--OR --

client.get_slice(KEYSPACE, "", new ColumnParent("Super2"), slicePredicate,  ConsistencyLevel.ALL);

Or is there a different way to find everything under a SuperColumn Family?

Subject: Re: CRUD test

That's a question that many Java developers would like the answer to.
Unfortunately, anything better than milliseconds requires JNI, since the current JVM doesn't
officially support anything higher. There are solutions to this particular problem, but for
most people, milliseconds are sufficient outside of testing. This is because the likelihood
of making two conflicting changes to the same row/column in the same "session" within the
same millisecond is pretty low for actual users and real scenarios. Tests tend to be a little
unrealistic in the sense that they happen quickly within a short amount of time and aren't
dependent on the timing of people or other systems.

If you are using a "remove and replace" scheme, it could still be a problem. The way I get
around it for now is to use the microsecond unit of time with a millisecond source (getCurrentMillis()),
and increment it artificially when it would return the same value twice in a row. It's a hack,
but it works for my purposes.
