Subject [jira] [Commented] (GORA-98) Support CQL through Gora Hector API usage in Gora
Date Sat, 21 Mar 2015 20:18:38 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GORA-98?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14372987#comment-14372987

Marko Asplund commented on GORA-98:

Hello Lewis,

I really appreciate you taking the time to give more background on this issue, thank you!

My interest in Gora is through Nutch 2. I'm actually not using the Cassandra module at the
moment, but could be in the future. I've worked with Cassandra (with both Astyanax and Datastax
clients) before in a different context, though.

As things currently stand in the Cassandra Java client space, it seems like Datastax driver
is clearly the stongest contender and using anything else in Gora would be a wasted effort
in the long term for Gora Cassandra support.

So, yes (from a user point of view) I'd suggest migrating Gora Cassandra to use the Datastax
driver and eliminating support for other Cassandra clients to make development and maintenance
easier and faster. I think this would also make sense from a library dependency point of view.

> 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.
