------------------------------------

             Summary: support user-defined table metadata
                 Key: ACCUMULO-2336
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-2336
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Adam Fuchs


An Accumulo table can have all sorts of external information that applications use to interact
with the table. One example is schema definition. Another might be information about what
data or data sources have been loaded into the table. It would be nice to encapsulate all
of this information together with the table's data for easier management, particularly when
cloning tables or discovering tables that are shared across applications (multi-tenancy).

How can we support generic table metadata properties so that users can innovate independently?
These could be accessible via the table properties, or this could be a separate set of public
API methods if appropriate.
