Will spark-cassandra-connector 2.5.x be updated to include Cassandra Java driver 4.10?

I know I have asked a similar question few days ago for inclusion of cassandra 4.9 driver into Spark Cassandra connector 2.5.x

I see that there is a new version of the cassandra driver 4.10 and spark connector 2.5.2 release is still awaited.

Hence, will spark-cassandra-connector 2.5 be updated to include cassandra Java driver 4.10?

@rajivbandi_122971, thanks for your question! Are there any particular feature set that you are specifically looking at the latest Java Driver that needs to be incorporated into SCC? Could you provide additional details around that?

Having said that, SCC will be updated with DataStax Java Driver 4.10.0 as part of SPARKC-640. Stay tuned!

Thank you smadhavan.

I am looking at these improvements in 4.10.0. In general, any bug fixes are welcome.

  • [improvement] JAVA-2907: Switch Tinkerpop to an optional dependency
  • [improvement] JAVA-2904: Upgrade Jackson to 2.12.0 and Tinkerpop to 3.4.9
  • [bug] JAVA-2911: Prevent control connection from scheduling too many reconnections

The embedded driver only gets updated when there's a need for it. It doesn't always happen. Cheers!

Thanks for the quick response, Erick. But addressing security vulnerabilities as early as possible is always a need.

For the record, there are no security fixes between 4.9 and 4.10. So again, the driver is only updated when there's a need for it. Cheers!

Agree.

I am looking at any dependency changes too.

  • [improvement] JAVA-2907: Switch Tinkerpop to an optional dependency
  • [improvement] JAVA-2904: Upgrade Jackson to 2.12.0 and Tinkerpop to 3.4.9

Jackson has a tendency to be flagged for security issues very often.
