Hi Cassandra users,

I've begun work on a very exciting project which has been moving quite slowly recently. It's combining Apache Nutch, Gora ORM framework (Apache Incubator) and Apache Cassandra as a back end storage platform for web crawling.

Atm I'm running Cassandra 0.8.4 in local/single mode and after starting the server up I get the pleasing  INFO output so I'm happy with the way it is running. When using Gora we need to pass properties for the location of the Cassandra server and when I try to inject URLs I'm getting

lewis@lewis-01:~/ASF/nutchgora/runtime/local$ bin/nutch inject urls crawldb
InjectorJob: starting
InjectorJob: urlDir: urls

Can anyone please navigate me to a page which details the types of properties we can pass to Cassandra?

Thank you kindly.
