Subject Re: Why Hector is taking more time than Thrift
Date Wed, 06 Jun 2012 09:19:51 GMT
Hector is a higher-level client that provides some abstraction and an easy
to use interface. The Thrift API is pretty raw. So for most cases the
Hector client would be the best choice; except for use-cases where the
ultimate performance is a requirement (resulting in lots of more
maintenance between Thrift API changes).
