Subject Re: Check out if Cassandra ready
Date Fri, 01 Nov 2013 13:34:30 GMT
I recommend using CassandraUnit (
It makes using Cassandra in unit tests quite easy.

It allows you to start an embedded Cassandra synchronously with a single
simple method call, optionally load your schema and initial data, and
you're ready to start testing.

I'm using it in many unit tests (although formally it's not a unit test
anymore when relying on a cassandra node). The fantastic performance of
Cassandra even allows me to clear all column families and insert the test
fixture rows for each individual test case.

Good luck,
