I have released version 0.7.1 of my Cassandra Connection Pool. Versions in the 0.7.x series match Cassandra 0.7.x, and therefore require libthrift 0.5.
This version is also being used in the recently released Infinispan 5.0.0.CR1.
The artifacts are now available in Maven Central so you just need to add the following dependency to your pom.xml without any additional bits and pieces:
net.dataforte.cassandra cassandra-connection-pool 0.7.1
I also wish to announce that I am currently working on Cassandra Armeria, an abstraction layer for Cassandra’s ever-changing Thrift API, and hope that this will provide the basis for Infinispan’s Cassandra support in the next release cycle (5.1.0).
