Subject Re: is that possible to add more data structure(key-list) in cassandra?
Date Fri, 11 Nov 2011 13:03:18 GMT
You could use composite columns.For example,

      composite(listname:listindex) : value

A simple get_range would give you access to list as you would normally
have in any programming language, and a "get" could give you direct
access to any index.
Obviously, this would not be a good fit for list which need insertion
at a specific index or reordering...
