On the server you need to load the schema from the yaml. To do this you will
need to use jconsole to connect and run the schema load method. You only
need to do this once on a single node.

using jconsole to load schemas results in the following exception being generated.

I understand from FAQ     


that keyspaces are not loaded by default. What could explain that I am able to see the kepspaces via CLI and not able to see when connecting to same cassandra instance via java.

Thanks a lot

I have written some code to load and drop keyspaces and column families
for hector; but I'm not quite happy with it yet. This will enable you
to do everything
