Subject Re: Get column names without getting the data in them
Date Tue, 01 Feb 2011 21:27:18 GMT
"Cassandra column families are schema-less and like SQL tables, they don't
have a fixed number of columns per row.  In the same column family, one row
may have 5 columns, and another row, 10,000 columns. Every row can possibly
have a different number / set of columns."

are you saying the above is incorrect?
