Subject Re: Make release versions of JavaDocs available?
Date Thu, 17 Jun 2010 00:12:34 GMT
Hi Jeremy,
  I'm not a Cassandra Dev, but I am building a Datanucleus plugin for it
>>From a consumer perspective, I would really appreciate a couple of
things.

Javadoc.  As you said, I don't need to know every minute detail on the
internal workings of Cassandra.  However having a basic understanding of
how all the classes communicate would help me with optimizing joins and
secondary indexes (manually created) in my plugin.

Upload artifacts to maven repository.  If possible, please start
deploying the binaries and all the dependent jars to the maven
repository.  Currently I have to upload them all manually.  This works
well for developing my plugin within my company.  However, when I'm done
building it I will be releasing it as open source.  It is very difficult
for users to get up and running since they have to manually install all
the jars to run the unit and integration tests for the plugin.

Thanks,

Todd

 However, it might be nice to have for certain things, like the Hadoop hooks - ColumnFamilyRecordReader
et al.  It might also help people get up to speed when they want to contribute to Cassandra
as devs.
