Subject Re: Prepared Statement - cache duration (CQL3 - Cassandra 1.2.4)
Date Tue, 23 Apr 2013 15:21:58 GMT
Having to catch the exception and parse it is a bit ugly, however this is
close to what someone might do with an SQLException to determine if the
error was transient etc.  If there is an error code it is possible that it
could be added as an optional property of the InvalidRequestException in
future versions.

Switching to the "binany protocol" is not a method in thrift, it means your
not using thrift at all.
