Subject [jira] [Commented] (PHOENIX-977) custom row key separator
Date Mon, 12 May 2014 02:50:14 GMT


Cristian Armaselu commented on PHOENIX-977:

Unfortunately a view is created with select *.

This is my intention:
create a table in hbase (I want to control the region splitting policy + other things).
No column is created at this time.
Create on the fly/as needed either PTable or updatable views on top of the hbase table.
I cannot use a view since I don't know the columns and their families upfront.

> It would be nice if we can have a custom row key separator stored together with the PTable
metadata used at table creation time.

> Also it would be useful to be able to drop a PTable without dropping the existing hbase
table and data, or at least make it optional.
> Also it would be nice to be able to create multiple PTables mapped to the same hbase
table since the end goal is to create less table in hbase, bundle them together in one big
