About DataStax Studio 

DataStax Studio for CQL (Cassandra Query Language) and DSE Graph.

DataStax Studio is an interactive tool for CQL (Cassandra Query Language) and DSE Graph:
  • For CQL, it provides the ability to visually create and navigate database objects, create complex queries, and tune CQL queries. Studio includes an intelligent CQL editor that provides syntax highlighting, validation, intelligent code completion, configuration options, and query profiling.
  • For DSE Graph, it allows you to explore and view large datasets. It provides an intuitive interface for developers and analysts to collaborate and test theories by mixing code, documentation, and visualizations for query results and profiles into self-documenting notebooks.

    Notebooks combine runnable Gremlin code and markdown text in a rich interactive environment. The code is written in the Gremlin graph traversal language. This code is executed by the Gremlin Server that is a part of DataStax Enterprise Graph component. Markdown is a simple language for creating human-readable plain text documents that can be displayed.

Upgrading DataStax Studio 

The internal format for Studio settings and notebooks may change when a new version is released. While newly-created notebooks might not work with older versions of Studio, notebooks created in older versions of Studio can be used with new versions. To be on the safe side, you should always back up your older notebooks before opening them in a newer version of Studio (in case you want to downgrade your version of Studio and reopen these notebooks).
