Accessing data using CQL

Common ways to access data include cqlsh, drivers, and DataStax Studio.

Common ways to access data using CQL are:

  • CQL shell (cqlsh): a Python-based command line shell to access the database and issue CQL (Cassandra Query Language) commands.
  • DataStax drivers: the primary resource for application developers to connect to database clusters.
  • DataStax Studio: an interactive developer's tool with self-documenting notebooks.
