I have everything set up but I can't seem to get authentication to work. I think my problem might be how to tell Cassandra where the and files are. Here is what I've tried in the cassandra.bat file:

I first tried specifying it on the CASSANDRA_PARAMS line as this:

set CASSANDRA_PARAMS=-Dcassandra -Dcassandra-foreground=yes\conf\\conf\

I then tried specifying it on the JAVA_OPTS line as follows:


No matter what I try I keep getting this:

I am calling HFactory.createCluster as follows:

I ran it in debug and I know the correct username and password are being passed in so I'm guessing that Cassandra can't find the properties files.

Any ideas?

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
