CQL

The preferred interface to Cassandra 1.2 and 2.0 is CQL. There is a quick introduction in GettingStarted and full documentation by DataStax.

To use CQL effectively you should also understand Cassandra data modeling.

If you plan to write a CQL client, you should also read about the communication protocol specification. Clients do not need to parse CQL, so you shouldn't need to know the details of the antlr grammar
