Subject Preventing an update of a CF row
Date Sat, 16 Oct 2010 01:16:44 GMT
Hi All,

I have a query regarding the insert operation. The insert operation by default  
inserts an new row or updates an existing row. Is it possible to prevent an 
update but allow only inserts automatically  ( especially when multiple clients 
are writing to cassandra)?  I was wondering if there is any flag in cassandra 
that will validate this for me automatically ( something like unique key 
constraint) ? If not, is it non-trivial to implement this ? Any suggestions 
would be helpful.
