Subject Re: Retrieving old data version for a given row
Date Wed, 30 May 2012 09:53:47 GMT
I have further questions:
-Is there any other way to stract the contect of SSTable, writing a
java program for example instead of using sstable2json?
-I tried to get tombstons using the thrift API, but seems to be not
possible, is it right? When I try, the program throws an exception.

thanks in advance
