Subject Re: Counter Column
Date Sat, 27 Dec 2014 13:20:40 GMT
In java,
http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/api/java/lang/System.html#currentTimeMillis()
return "the difference, measured in milliseconds, between the current time
and midnight, January 1, 1970 UTC." It means the timestamp which Cassandra
uses is not independent on the timezone.
