I've been asked lately for some sample code in Java that writes and then reads a value with Cassandra, so I thought I'd post some code that does this. This should work for 0.7 beta 1: package com.cassandraguide.rw; import java.io.UnsupportedEncodingException;import java.util.List; import org.apache.cassandra.thrift.Cassandra;import org.apache.cassandra.thrift.Clock; import org.apache.cassandra.thrift.Column;import org.apache.cassandra.thrift.ColumnOrSuperColumn;import org.apache.cassandra.thrift.ColumnParent; import org.apache.cassandra.thrift.ColumnPath;import org.apache.cassandra.thrift.ConsistencyLevel; import org.apache.cassandra.thrift.InvalidRequestException; import org.apache.cassandra.thrift.NotFoundException; import org.apache.cassandra.thrift.SlicePredicate; import org.apache.cassandra.thrift.SliceRange; import org.apache.cassandra.thrift.TimedOutException; import org.apache.cassandra.thrift.UnavailableException; import org.apache.log4j.Logger;import org.apache.thrift.TException; import org.apache.thrift.protocol.TBinaryProtocol;import org.apache.thrift.protocol.TProtocol; import org.apache.thrift.transport.TFramedTransport;import org.apache.thrift.transport.TSocket; import org.apache.thrift.transport.TTransport; public...

One thing that seems to come up with some frequency in SOA circles is creating a checklist that would help make the development team, the architecture group, SOA Governance board, and the business customer feel confident about rolling out a... Continue reading

Some friends on Twitter (@starbuxman and @mikojava) recently had a quick exchange regarding writer's block. Now that I'm in the midst of writing what is probably my sixth book (I forget), and because I know many writers, I think about... Continue reading

I've just finished putting together a rough first draft of an appendix for Cassandra: The Definitive Guide. It's a Glossary of Terms that covers everything from Anti-Entropy to Vector Clocks. I wanted to post it here to help sort out the many tricky terms that one comes across when getting started with Cassandra. I'm writing the book in DocBook XML, so this is just a plain generated HTML page. You can read it at http://io.typepad.com/glossary.html.... Continue reading

Set up this new blog to help people learn about Apache Cassandra and related NoSQL technologies. I will add some files from the book as I get them prepared, and add other Cassandra-related information here, so check back later. If you're looking for posts on Java, web services, recipes, or stuff on Java SOA Cookbook, then you can still access that blog at http://io.typepad.com/eben_hewitt_on_java Happy reading!
