Subject Indexing&Locking in Cassandra
Date Thu, 16 Sep 2010 13:14:24 GMT

I have a few questions about indexing and locking in Cassandra:
- if I understood well only row level indexing exists prior to v0.7. I mean only the primary
keys are indexed. Is that true?
- is it possible to use composite primary keys? For instance I have a user object: User(name,birthday,gender,address)
and I want to have the (name,birthday) columns as PK. Can I do? If yes, how?
- does Cassandra support CF (table) level locking? Couls someone explain me/provide a link

Thanks in advance,
