Subject Re: Cassandra yaml configuration
Date Thu, 22 Sep 2011 06:33:58 GMT
The book is a bit out dated now.
You should better to use cassandra-cli to define your application schema.
Please refer to conf/schema-sample.txt and help in cassandra-cli.

% cassandra-cli
[default@unknown] help;
[default@unknown] help create keyspace;
[default@unknown] help create column family;

You can load schema defined in text file by cassandra-cli:
% cassandra-cli -h host -p port --file your-schema-definition.txt
