Subject CQL, 0.8, and need for language drivers
Date Wed, 13 Apr 2011 02:16:28 GMT
As some may have heard, CQL is going to be in 0.8.  It's a level of abstraction that will hopefully
make the lives of client developers substantially easier.  The ideal is to make it so client
devs only need to do work to make a client idiomatic to a language or even a framework within
a language.  Work has already been done to add a Java driver (even a JDBC driver), a Python
driver (even a dbapi driver and Python Twisted driver), and work is under way to add a PHP
driver and a node.js driver

Cassandra 0.8 is part of a shorter release cycle and will include CQL.  It will be going to
its first beta shortly.

If you would like to help get support into 0.8 with a driver for your favorite language, take
a look at the examples already in the source tree and dig in.  Use the client-dev@cassandra.apache.org
mailing list (see the bottom of http://cassandra.apache.org for mailing list details) and
Jira for any communication.  Each driver needs its own Jira ticket.

See:
https://svn.apache.org/viewvc/cassandra/branches/cassandra-0.8/doc/cql/CQL.html?view=co
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-1703 - CQL umbrella ticket
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-2402 - python dbapi ticket
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-2453 - node.js
The rest of the drivers are either in the source tree under:
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/cassandra/branches/cassandra-0.8/drivers/
or are still being talked about on the mailing list.

Thanks to Eric Evans and Gary Dusbabek and others for all their hard work!
