Some of the Mapping libraries can help translate into objects and not have sooo much DAO code

PlayOrm has a whole feature list of things that can be helpful.  I am sure other high level
clients have stuff as well that can speed up development time.

Subject: CQL3 and clients for new Cluster

Hi all,

I started looking at Cassandra awhile ago and got used to the Thrift API. I put it on the
back burner for awhile though until now. To get back up to speed I have read a lot of documentation
at the DataStax website, and it appears that the Thrift API is no longer considered the ideal
way to interface with Cassandra.

So my questions are these:

What is the future of the Thrift API, should I just ignore it going forward and use CQL?

If CQL is the preferred way to interface with Cassandra, does using any of the clients listed
here: provide me any benefits over using a
JDBC like the one listed here
