Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-1603) cli: allow entering binary data to columns with no metadata
Date Wed, 13 Oct 2010 12:42:33 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-1603:

well, it would really have to be

get CF[key][column] as <type>

then if we remember that type so that

get CF[key]

shows column correctly, that should be fine.

> CASSANDRA-1578 adds support for when we have metadata for the column in the schema, but
we should also allow manually turning a given string into a binary format.

> set CF[column]=timeuuid(12345678-1234-5678-1234-567812345678)
> {code}

> maybe adding a cli command "assume column family with ..." would be best, allowing the
operator to create local metadata that unlike "update columnfamily" doesn't get sent to the
server.  (saving the local metadata between cli sessions would be good.)
