Astyanax is a high level Java client for Apache Cassandra.

Issues generally are fixed as quickly as possbile and releases done frequently. Some features provided by this client: o high level, simple object oriented interface to cassandra o failover behavior on the client side o Connection pool abstraction. Implementation of a round robin connection pool. o Monitoring abstraction to get event notification from the connection pool o complete encapsulation of the underlying Thrift API and structs o automatic retry of downed hosts o automatic discovery of additional hosts in the cluster o suspension of hosts for a short period of time after several timeouts o annotations to simplify use of composite columns Detailed documentation of Astyanax features and usage can be found on the wiki: https://github.com/Netflix/astyanax/wiki The work was initially inspired by https://github.com/rantav/hector.
