DataStax C# Driver for Apache Cassandra Quickstart

Build Status

A basic C#/.NET demo CRUD application using the DataStax C# Driver for Apache Cassandra. The intent is to help users get up and running quickly with the driver. If you are having trouble, the complete code solution for Program.cs can be found here.

Prerequisites

Create the keyspace and table

The users.cql file provides the schema used for this project:

CREATE KEYSPACE demo
    WITH replication = {'class': 'SimpleStrategy', 'replication_factor': '1'};

CREATE TABLE demo.users (
    lastname text PRIMARY KEY,
    age int,
    city text,
    email text,
    firstname text);

Connect to your cluster

All of our code is contained in the Program class. Note how the main method creates a session to connect to our cluster and runs the CRUD operations against it. Replace the default parameter in Cluster.Builder() with your own contact point.

// TO DO: Fill in your own contact point
Cluster cluster = Cluster.Builder()
                         .AddContactPoint("127.0.0.1")
                         .Build();
ISession session = cluster.Connect("demo");

CRUD Operations

Fill the code in the methods that will add a user, get a user, update a user and delete a user from the table with the driver.

INSERT a user

private static void SetUser(ISession session, String lastname, int age, String city, String email, String firstname) {
    
    //TO DO: execute SimpleStatement that inserts one user into the table
    var statement = new SimpleStatement("INSERT INTO users (lastname, age, city, email, firstname) VALUES (?,?,?,?,?)", lastname, age, city, email, firstname);

    session.Execute(statement);
}

SELECT a user

 private static void GetUser(ISession session, String lastname){

      //TO DO: execute SimpleStatement that retrieves one user from the table
      //TO DO: print firstname and age of user
      var statement = new SimpleStatement("SELECT * FROM users WHERE lastname = ?", lastname);
      
      var result = session.Execute(statement).First();
      Console.WriteLine("{0} {1}", result["firstname"], result["age"]);

}

UPDATE a user's age

private static void UpdateUser(ISession session, int age, String lastname) {

    //TO DO: execute SimpleStatement that updates the age of one user
    var statement = new SimpleStatement("UPDATE users SET age =? WHERE lastname = ?", age, lastname);

    session.Execute(statement);
}

DELETE a user

private static void DeleteUser(ISession session, String lastname) {

    //TO DO: execute SimpleStatement that deletes one user from the table
    var statement = new SimpleStatement("DELETE FROM users WHERE lastname = ?", lastname);

    session.Execute(statement);
}
