Subject Re: how to add table
Date Wed, 08 Jul 2009 05:44:19 GMT
See the 'Getting Started' documentation:

It could be better on stuff like creating a table but basically, after
firing up the shell -- see above for how -- type 'help' and study the
command, it has examples for doing stuff like creating tables, etc.  For
example, from the help:

 create    Create table; pass table name, a dictionary of specifications per
           column family, and optionally a dictionary of table
           Dictionaries are described below in the GENERAL NOTES section.

           hbase> create 't1', {NAME => 'f1', VERSIONS => 5}
           hbase> create 't1', {NAME => 'f1'}, {NAME => 'f2'}, {NAME =>
           hbase> # The above in shorthand would be the following:
           hbase> create 't1', 'f1', 'f2', 'f3'
           hbase> create 't1', {NAME => 'f1', VERSIONS => 1, TTL => 2592000,
             BLOCKCACHE => true}

For what a column family is, etc., see the bigtable paper or the hbase
architecture document on the wiki.
