Other question

(I'm moving from cassandra 0.7.10 to 1.1)

the class org.apache.cassandra.thrift.Column.Column 's constructor arguments is now just name instead of (name, value, timestamp)

So it should be called like this?

new Column(myColumnName).setValue(myVal).setTimestamp(System.currentTimeMillis());

Larger.. , but no choice

I bet you are using cql commands in cassandra-cli.


If you are using cli, use instead:

create keyspace Excelsior with placement_strategy=’SimpleStrategy’ and strategy_options = [{replication_factor:1}]

gives this error:


Syntax error at position 85: mismatched input ':' expecting '='


I've looked in changes but didn't found
