Bingo! Thanks to both of you.  (the C* community rocks)

A few hours worth of work, and I've got a working REST-based photo repository backed by  C* using the CQL java driver. =)

rock on, thanks again,

I assume I'm doing something wrong in the select.  Am I incorrectly using the ResultSet?

You're incorrectly using the returned ByteBuffer. But you should not feel bad, that API kinda
sucks.

The short version is that .array() returns the backing array of the ByteBuffer. But there is no
guarantee that you'll have a one-to-one correspondence between the valid content of the
ByteBuffer and the backing array, the backing array can be bigger in particular (long story short,
this allows multiple ByteBuffer to share the same backing array, which can avoid doing copies).

I also note that there is no guarantee that .array() will work unless you've called .hasArray().

Anyway, what you could do is:
ByteBuffer bb = resultSet.one().getBytes("data");
byte[] data = new byte[bb.remaining()];
bb.get(data);

Alternatively, you can use the result of .array(), but you should only consider the bb.remaining() 
bytes starting at bb.arrayOffset() + bb.position() (where bb is the returned ByteBuffer).

Yep, it worked like a charm.  (PreparedStatement avoided the hex conversion)

But now, I'm seeing a few extra bytes come back in the select….
(I'll keep digging, but maybe you have some insight?)

I see this:

ERROR [2013-04-11 13:05:03,461] com.skookle.dao.RepositoryDao: repository.add() byte.length()=[259804]

ERROR [2013-04-11 13:08:08,487] com.skookle.dao.RepositoryDao: repository.get() [foo.jpeg] byte.length()=[259861]


(Notice the length's don't match up)

Using this code:

    public void addContent(String key, byte[] data)

            throws NoHostAvailableException {

        LOG.error("repository.add() byte.length()=[" + data.length + "]");

        String statement = "INSERT INTO " + KEYSPACE + "." + TABLE + "(key, data) VALUES (?, ?)";

        PreparedStatement ps = session.prepare(statement);

        BoundStatement bs = ps.bind(key, ByteBuffer.wrap(data));

        session.execute(bs);

    }


    public byte[] getContent(String key) throws NoHostAvailableException {

        Query select = select("data").from(KEYSPACE, TABLE).where(eq("key", key));

        ResultSet resultSet = session.execute(select);

        byte[] data = resultSet.one().getBytes("data").array();

        LOG.error("repository.get() [" + key + "] byte.length()=[" + data.length + "]");

        return data;

    }

Hopefully, the prepared statement doesn't do the conversion.

It does not.
 
(I'm not sure if it is a limitation of the CQL protocol itself)

thanks again,
