high level clients for Cassandra on the web. To be frank, I see problems with all of the java
clients. For example, Hector and Scale7-pelops have new semantics on them that are neither
Java's or Cassandra's, and I don't see much gain from it apart from the fact that it is more
complex. Also, I was hoping to go with something that was annotation based so that it wouldn't
be necessary to write boilerplate code (again, no gain). 
> Demoiselle Cassandra seems to be one option but I couldn't find a download for it. I'm
new to Java in the back-end and I find that maven is too much to learn just because of a client
library. Also it seems to be hard to integrate with the other things I use on my project (GWT,
GWT-platform, Google Eclipse Plugin).

that links to Google site, but no download) its information is partitioned on many blog posts,
some of them saying things I couldn't find on its website. One says it uses Lucandra for indexes
but that is the only place talking about it, no documentation about using it. It doesn't seem
to support Cassandra 0.8 also. Does it?

What are the success stories of using Cassandra with Java. What would you recommend?
