Probably related to the upgrade to 0.7.0.
This patch upgrades everything to Cassandra 0.7.0. It still fails however, probably because Thrift framed transport is the default now (according to Stu Hood). So CassandraServiceTest needs changing.
0002 - Uses TFramedTransport, which became the default in Cassandra 0.7
0003 - Since schemas can now be created on the fly, use a Thrift call that doesn't require a schema to exist
This now passes the tests for me. Sorry to have broken them!
+1 tested on ec2 and rackspacecloud.
Note: before commit remember to replace the .jar files in services/cassandra/lib with newer versions.
I've just committed this. Thanks Stu!
