Subject Re: Build an index to join two CFs
Date Fri, 10 Sep 2010 23:42:27 GMT
I cannot tell you where in the code to make these changes. But it sounds like you want to fork
cassandra and turn it into a RDBMS. It would undoubtedly be easier to just use a RDBMS.

Rather than have two CF's, address and name, just have one for the person using a super CF.
Pull back the entire row for the id. Denormalise your data so the query is answered by one
slice request to one CF, then you do not need  joins. 

If you want some advice on the data model, move the discussion to the user list.
