Subject [jira] [Commented] (GORA-98) Support CQL through Gora Hector API usage in Gora

Lewis John McGibbney commented on GORA-98:

Hi Marko,
Your correct.
If you look, you will see an announcement that some years ago, that Gora
decided to move to Hector support.
I am on the hector lists, and although I disagree with your comment that
the code is unmaintained, I do agree that there default driver for
Cassandra is DataStax. There has been a pile of money, resources, effort
and public outreach poured into the driver development. For that reason, I
would certainly suggest that we close all hector related issues and port
the code to the Datastax Java API.
Previously, Renato Marroquin wrote a bunch of code which actually
implemented a pluggable storage abstraction layer within Gora-cassandra.
Although this meant that you were playing with Gora then an abstraction
then a Cassandra Client API then cassandra, it was extremely valid for
doing comparative analysis on Cassandra client behavior.
If you suggest we close hector related issues I am +1.
We currently have a major bug in persistence of nested UNION RECORDS in
Gora Cassandra. I submitted an initial, unfinished patch for review, I've
currently had no feedback and unfortunately I haven't had time to look more
thoroughly I'm sorry about that.
If you would like to drive this issue it would be great. If not, it is also
great. Thank you for writing and letting us know that this is a required

> CQL queries were an interesting new feature for Apache Cassandra 0.8.0. The initial implementation
in Hector deals simply with the single execute_cql_query thrift method and is largely intended
as a means to test drive query functionality and behavior, it would be nice to implement this
within Gora.
