Subject RE: Modeling nested collection with C* 2.0
Date Thu, 28 Jan 2016 15:50:07 GMT
I need to query all columns by the userid.

For example: Select * from users where userid  = 123;

frozen UDT don’t exist in Cassandra 2.0 ☹

Generally, you should use clustering columns to model nested structures, unless they really
are simply list/map structures.

But, first, as with all data modeling in Cassandra, start by looking at how you intend to
query the data. Do you need to query individual addresses, email addresses, streets, etc.?
If so, separate rows for each address is a better way to go. On the flip side, if the full
address is just a blob that you will interpret in the app, a frozen UDT or JSON blob is a
reasonable way to go. In any case, tell us about your query needs first.

Hi Ahmed,

I think modelling them as a map where you can 'label' your emails or addresses sounds like
a good option.

Just using text and serializing as Json is the easy way and a common approach.

However, this list is for Cassandra commiter discussion, please be so kind as to use the regular
user list for data modeling questions or for any future responses to this email thread.

I need your help for modeling a nested collection with cassanrda2.0 (UDT no,
no fozen)

My users table contains emails by type, each type of email contains multiple

Type: pro. emails: {<>,<>

Type: private. emails: {<>,<>}

The user table also contains addresses, address type with fields.


Type: Pro. address {Street= aaa, number = 123, apartment = bbb}

Type: Private. address {Street = bbb, number = 123, apartment = kkk }

I am looking for a solution to store all these columns in one table.

Thank you.
