Thanks Edward,

My Bad. I was confused as It does seems to create keyspace also, As I understand (although i'm not sure)

   List<CfDef> cfDefList = new ArrayList<CfDef>();
        CfDef columnFamily = new CfDef(KEYSPACE, COLUMN_FAMILY);
        cfDefList.add(columnFamily);
        try
        {
            client.system_add_keyspace(new KsDef(KEYSPACE, "org.apache.cassandra.locator.SimpleStrategy", 1, cfDefList));
            int magnitude = client.describe_ring(KEYSPACE).size();

Can I request you to please point me to some examples with I can start. I try to see some example from hector but it does seems to be in-line with Cassandra's 1.1 version.

Regards,
Rahul

This is a bad example to follow. This is the internal client the Cassandra nodes use to talk to each other (fat client) usually you do not use this unless you want to write some embedded code on the Cassandra server.

Typically clients use thrift/native transport. But you are likely getting the error you are seeing because the keyspace or column family is not created yet.
