Cassandra connector POJO - tombstone question

Tarandeep Singh
Hi,

I am using flink-1.2 and Cassandra connector to write to cassandra tables. I am using POJOs with DataStax annotations as described here-
https://ci.apache.org/projects/flink/flink-docs-release-1.3/dev/connectors/cassandra.html

My question is- how are nulls handles by cassandra sink?

Datastax documentation on Mapper states that if we are using POJOs to store data in Cassandra table and the POJO has null fields, then it can create tombstones, so one should use saveNullFields(false) so that null fields are not persisted -
https://docs.datastax.com/en/developer/java-driver/3.1/manual/object_mapper/using/#mapper-options

Default behavior is to persist null fields.

In cassandra pojo sink code, I don't see this option set on Mapper-
https://github.com/apache/flink/blob/master/flink-connectors/flink-connector-cassandra/src/main/java/org/apache/flink/streaming/connectors/cassandra/CassandraPojoSink.java

So does this mean, I can expect to see tombstones when writing data (assuming my POJOs have null fields). If yes, can we expose an option to disable saving null fields.

Thanks,
Tarandeep

Chesnay Schepler
Hello,

what i can do is add hook like we do for the ClusterBuilder with which
you can provide a set of options that will
be used for every call to the mapper. This would provide you access with
all options that are listed on the page
you linked.

You can find an implementation of this here:
https://github.com/zentol/flink/tree/unknown_cass_options

Note that this branch is on 1.3-SNAPSHOT, but it should be possible for
you to cherry-pick it onto a 1.2 branch.

I will add a ticket for this soon (currently getting timeouts in JIRA).

Regards,
Chesnay

Hi Chesnay,

Did your code changes (exposing mapper options) made it in 1.3 release?

Thank you,
Tarandeep
