Subject Migrate from Hector(unmaintained) to Astyanax for Cassandra 2.0.7, (delaying thrift to CQL migration plan) ?
Date Wed, 28 May 2014 14:19:25 GMT
Currently I am using Hector which is no longer maintained by its
developers. So, for the past few days I have been looking at Astyanax & to
be fair, I think I'm just loving its API.

For sometime now I also had a look at CQL Java driver maintained by
Datastax but right now, I don't very much love/understand the CQL ways of
dealing with things like wide dynamic rows, etc, may be because of the past
few years of working with thrift based Hector API. Also I think it's not a
really simple transition to move from thrift to CQL.

So I am using Cassandra 2.0.7 & I wanted to know:

1. Does Astyanax(thrift based) supports Cassandra 2.0. ?
2. *What is the future of thrift based APIs  *(& specifically Astyanax) ?
3. where do I get support for Astyanax ?
4. Is it recommended to delay my plans to migrate from thrift to CQL & just
use thrift based API for now?
