Brian O'Neill posted this a while ago ... sits on top of Cassandra to give you the RESTful API you want

Another option ...

Or, you could simply build your own ...

Hi James,

No, Cassandra doesn't supports a RESTful api.

As Tamar points out, you have to supply this functionality yourself specifically for your data model.

When designing your RESTful server application:
- consider using a RESTful framework (for example: Jersey)
- use a cassandra client to access your Cassandra data (for example: astyanax)

Good luck,

Thanks for the reply,
But can you tell me how do you form your request URLs,
I mean does Cassandra support a native RESTful api for talking to the
system, and if yes, on which specific port it is listening for the
coming requests ? and what does it expect for the format for the URLs ?

Thanks in advance,

       Dear all,

       I am trying to query the system, specifically performing a GET
       for a specific key, through Jmeter (or CURL)
       and I am wondering what is the best pure RESTful API for the
       system (with the lowest overhead) that I can use.
