Cassandra clusters are symmetric in that you can connect to any node in the cluster and perform operations. Thrift has a multi-step connection process. Client instance. Client, users can call multiple methods without having to reconnect. We called some methods such as describe_cluster_name() that show some information about the cluster and then disconnect.

Setting up a build and test environment for tasks in this book Cassandra does not have a standardized data access language such as SQL or XPATH. Access to Cassandra is done through the Application Programmer Interface (API). Cassandra has support for Thrift, which generates bindings for a variety of languages. Since Cassandra is written in Java, these bindings are well established, part of the Cassandra distribution, and stable. Thus, it makes sense to have a build environment capable of compiling and running Java applications to access Cassandra.

After changing the level, do set, get, and list operations as normal: [default@testkeyspace] get cars2['mynewcar']; => (column=make, value=ford, timestamp=1298580528208000) => (column=weight, value=2000, timestamp=1298580306095000) Returned 2 results. 43 The Command-line Interface How it works...
