    Description

      The rational is explained in CASSANDRA-7464 but to rephrase a bit:

      • json2sstable is pretty much useless, CQLSSTableWriter is way more flexible if you need to write sstable directly.
      • sstable2json is really only potentially useful for debugging, but it's pretty bad at that (it's output is not really all that helpul in modern Cassandra in particular).

      Now, it happens that updating those tool for CASSANDRA-8099, while possible, is a bit involved. So I don't think it make sense to invest effort in maintain these tools. So I propose to deprecate these in 2.2 with removal in 3.0.

      I'll note that having a tool to help debugging sstable can be useful, but I propose to add a tool for that purpose with CASSANDRA-7464.
