Hi Jean,

You should use 3.0.0-beta1.


DataStax Java driver series 2.2.x has been discontinued in favor of series
3.x; we explained why in this mail to the Java driver mailing list
We do not advise users to use this series.

So the most recent driver version compatible with all versions of
Cassandra, including 2.2 and 3.x, is now 3.0.0-beta1, although 3.0.0-rc1
will be released very soon.

In spite of its "beta" label, version 3.0.0-beta1 has been thoroughly
tested against all versions of Cassandra and is definitely
production-ready... as long as the Cassandra version in use is also
production-ready. Note however that Cassandra 2.2 and 3.0 are quite recent
and most companies AFAICT do not consider them yet as production-ready.

Hope that helps,
