• #### getList

<T> List<T> getList(String name,
Class<T> elementsClass)
Returns the value for name as a list.

This method uses the CodecRegistry to find a codec to convert the underlying CQL type to a list of the specified type.

Implementation note: the actual List implementation will depend on the codec being used; therefore, callers should make no assumptions concerning its mutability nor its thread-safety. Furthermore, the behavior of this method in respect to CQL NULL values is also codec-dependent. By default, the driver will return mutable instances, and a CQL NULL will mapped to an empty collection (note that Cassandra makes no distinction between NULL and an empty collection).

Implementation note: the actual Set implementation will depend on the codec being used; therefore, callers should make no assumptions concerning its mutability nor its thread-safety. Furthermore, the behavior of this method in respect to CQL NULL values is also codec-dependent. By default, the driver will return mutable instances, and a CQL NULL will mapped to an empty collection (note that Cassandra makes no distinction between NULL and an empty collection).

If the type of the keys and/or values is generic, use getMap(String, TypeToken, TypeToken).

Implementation note: the actual Map implementation will depend on the codec being used; therefore, callers should make no assumptions concerning its mutability nor its thread-safety. Furthermore, the behavior of this method in respect to CQL NULL values is also codec-dependent. By default, the driver will return mutable instances, and a CQL NULL will mapped to an empty collection (note that Cassandra makes no distinction between NULL and an empty collection).

This method uses the CodecRegistry to find a codec to convert the underlying CQL type to a map of the specified types.

Use this variant with nested collections, which produce a generic element type:

  Map<Int, List<String>> l = row.getMap("theColumn", TypeToken.of(Integer.class), new TypeToken<List<String>>() {});


Implementation note: the actual Map implementation will depend on the codec being used; therefore, callers should make no assumptions concerning its mutability nor its thread-safety. Furthermore, the behavior of this method in respect to CQL NULL values is also codec-dependent. By default, the driver will return mutable instances, and a CQL NULL will mapped to an empty collection (note that Cassandra makes no distinction between NULL and an empty collection).

Returns:
the value of name as a UDT value. If the value is NULL, then null will be returned.

Returns:
the value of name as a tuple value. If the value is NULL, then null will be returned.
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if name is not valid name for this object.
CodecNotFoundException - if there is no registered codec to convert the underlying CQL type to a TupleValue.
• #### getObject

Object getObject(String name)
Returns the value for name as the Java type matching its CQL type.

This method uses the CodecRegistry to find the first codec that handles the underlying CQL type. The Java type of the returned object will be determined by the codec that was selected.

Use this method to dynamically inspect elements when types aren't known in advance, for instance if you're writing a generic row logger. If you know the target Java type, it is generally preferable to use typed getters, such as the ones for built-in types (getBool(String), getInt(String), etc.), or get(String, Class) and get(String, TypeToken) for custom types.

Parameters:
name - the name to retrieve.
Returns:
the value of name as the Java type matching its CQL type. If the value is NULL and is a simple type, UDT or tuple, null is returned. If it is NULL and is a collection type, an empty (immutable) collection is returned.
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if name is not a valid name for this object.
CodecRegistry.codecFor(DataType)
• #### get

<T> T get(String name,
Class<T> targetClass)
Returns the value for name converted to the given Java type.

This method uses the CodecRegistry to find a codec to convert the underlying CQL type to the given Java type.

If the target type is generic, use get(String, TypeToken).

Implementation note: the actual object returned by this method will depend on the codec being used; therefore, callers should make no assumptions concerning its mutability nor its thread-safety. Furthermore, the behavior of this method in respect to CQL NULL values is also codec-dependent; by default, a CQL NULL value translates to null for simple CQL types, UDTs and tuples, and to empty collections for all CQL collection types.

Parameters:
name - the name to retrieve.
targetClass - The Java type the value should be converted to.
Returns:
the value for name value converted to the given Java type.
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if name is not a valid name for this object.
CodecNotFoundException - if there is no registered codec to convert the underlying CQL type to targetClass.
• #### get

<T> T get(String name,
com.google.common.reflect.TypeToken<T> targetType)
Returns the value for name converted to the given Java type.

This method uses the CodecRegistry to find a codec to convert the underlying CQL type to the given Java type.

Implementation note: the actual object returned by this method will depend on the codec being used; therefore, callers should make no assumptions concerning its mutability nor its thread-safety. Furthermore, the behavior of this method in respect to CQL NULL values is also codec-dependent; by default, a CQL NULL value translates to null for simple CQL types, UDTs and tuples, and to empty collections for all CQL collection types.

Parameters:
name - the name to retrieve.
targetType - The Java type the value should be converted to.
Returns:
the value for name value converted to the given Java type.
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if name is not a valid name for this object.
CodecNotFoundException - if there is no registered codec to convert the underlying CQL type to targetType.
• #### get

<T> T get(String name,
TypeCodec<T> codec)
Returns the value for name converted using the given TypeCodec.

This method entirely bypasses the CodecRegistry and forces the driver to use the given codec instead. This can be useful if the codec would collide with a previously registered one, or if you want to use the codec just once without registering it.

It is the caller's responsibility to ensure that the given codec accepts the underlying CQL type; failing to do so may result in InvalidTypeExceptions being thrown.

Implementation note: the actual object returned by this method will depend on the codec being used; therefore, callers should make no assumptions concerning its mutability nor its thread-safety. Furthermore, the behavior of this method in respect to CQL NULL values is also codec-dependent; by default, a CQL NULL value translates to null for simple CQL types, UDTs and tuples, and to empty collections for all CQL collection types.

Parameters:
name - the name to retrieve.
codec - The TypeCodec to use to deserialize the value; may not be null.
Returns:
the value of the ith value converted using the given TypeCodec.
Throws:
InvalidTypeException - if the given codec does not accept the underlying CQL type.
IndexOutOfBoundsException - if i is not a valid index for this object.
