Hi Clint,
That does appear to be an omission in CQL3. It would be possible to
simulate it by doing
BEGIN BATCH
UPDATE foo SET z = 10 WHERE x = 'a' AND y = 1 IF t= 2 AND z=10;
UPDATE foo SET t = 5,z=6 where x = 'a' AND y = 4
APPLY BATCH;
However, this does a redundant write to the first row if the condition
holds, and I certainly wouldn't recommend doing that routinely.
Alternatively, depending on your needs, you might be able to use a static
column (coming with 2.0.6) as your conditional flag, as that column is
shared by all rows in the partition.
